PHAIA (Φαία, Stadiasm. § 43; Φθία, Ptol. 4.5.2), a harbour of Marmarica, the name of which Olshausen (Phoenizische Ortsnamen, in Rhein. Mus. 1852, p. 324) connects with a Phoenician original. Barth (Reise, p. 505) has identified it with a small bay upon the coast, a little to the N. of Wady Temmineh.
