Mistea or Misthia, also known as Claudiocaesarea and Klaudiokaisareia, was a town of ancient Lycaonia, inhabited in Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine times.[1] Misthia was the seat of an archbishop; no longer residential, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.[2]

Its site is located near Beyşehir, Asiatic Turkey.[1][3]
