Tabae — A settlement in Caria
Tabae was a city in Caria. The name stems either from the founder, a man named Tabus, from 'tabi', which in Semitic languages means "good", or possibly from a native word 'taba', meaning "rock".

In 189 BC, the consul Gnaeus Manlius Vulso, having defeated the inhabitants who blocked his passage, exacted from Tabae a fine of 25 talents and 10,000 medimni of wheat.
