Hypaepa — A settlement in Lydia
Hypaepa was an Ancient city and (arch)bishopric in ancient Lydia, near the north bank of the Cayster River, and 42 miles from Ephesus.

In 88 BC, Hypaepa rebelled against Mithridates VI of Pontus and was severely punished. Under Tiberius it was selected as a candidate for the location of a temple dedicated to worship of the Emperor, but was rejected as being too insignificant. In fact, the Roman poet Ovid contrasted the great city of Sardis with what he called "little Hypaepa": Sardibus hinc, illinc parvis finitur Hypaepis.

Coinage of Hypaepa of the 3rd century AD are extant, until the time of Emperor Gallienus.
