Attali´a, a maritime city of Pamphylia, in Asia Minor, near the mouth of the river Catarrhactes. It derived its name from its founder, Attalus Philadelphus, king of Pergamos. It was visited by Paul and Barnabas, A.D. 45 (Acts 14:25). It still exists under the name of Adalia, and extensive and important ruins attest the former consequence of the city.
