Augusta (Ancient Greek: Αὔγουστα or Αὐγοῦστα) was a town in the interior of ancient Cilicia, inhabited during Roman and Byzantine times. The name shows that it was either founded under the patronage of some Roman emperor, or a new Roman name was given to an old place. Ptolemy places this town in a district named Bryelice. The town also bore the name Augustopolis, and possibly Thebae.
