Teichiussa or Teichioussa (Ancient Greek: Τειχιοῦσσα and Τειχιόεσσα[1]) was a town of ancient Caria or of Ionia[2] in the territory of Miletus, and according to Thucydides and Stephanus of Byzantium, a possession of the latter city.[3][4] It was a polis (city-state) and a member of the Delian League.[5] During the Peloponnesian War, the Spartans struck at Iasos from here.[6][2]

Its site is located near Kazıklı, Asiatic Turkey.[7][8]
