Sebaste (Ancient Greek: Σεβαστή) was a town of Phrygia Pacatiana in ancient Phrygia, inhabited in Roman and Byzantine times.[1] It was located between Alydda and Eumenia. It became the seat of a Christian bishop, mentioned by Hierocles,[2] and in the Acts of the Council of Constantinople, which its bishop attended.[3] No longer a residential bishopric, it remains, under the name Sebaste in Phrygia, a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.[4]

Its site is located near Selçikler in Asiatic Turkey.[1][5]
