Heraclea Salbace (Ancient Greek: Ἡράκλεια Σαλβάκη, romanized: Herakleia Salbake), Heraclea Salbaces (Ἡράκλεια Σαλβάκης - Herakleia Salbakes), Heraclea ad Albanum (Ἡράκλεια πρὸς Ἀλβανῷ - Herakleia pros Albano), or Heraclea Albace (Ἡράκλεια Ἀλβάκη), or simply Heraclea or Herakleia (Ἡράκλεια), also transliterated as Heracleia, was a town of ancient Caria.
The place must have Christianised early as an early bishopric is attested. Bishop Polychronius represented the town at the Council of Ephesus. No longer a residential see, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.
