Juliosebaste or Iuliosebaste, also possibly known as Heliosebaste, was a town of ancient Cilicia and later of Isauria, inhabited during Byzantine times.[1] Under the name of Heliosebaste, it became a bishopric; no longer the seat of a residential bishop, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.[2]

Its site is located near Asar tepe, in Asiatic Turkey.[1][3]
