Barate (Ancient Greek: Βαράτη), Barata (Βάρατα), or Baratta (Βάραττα), was a town of ancient Lycaonia, on the road from Iconium to Tyana, 50 M.P. from the former. In some itineraria the name is also spelt Barathra. It was inhabited during Roman and Byzantine times.[1]

Its site is tentatively located near Kızılkale, Asiatic Turkey.[1][2]

Barata is a titular bishopric of the Catholic Church.[3]
