Hygassos was a town of the Rhodian Peraea in ancient Caria, that was inhabited in the Hellenistic period.[1] The name does not appear in inscriptions, but the demonym (Ancient Greek: Ὑγασσέως) occurs frequently in ancient epigraphy.[2]

Its site is located on Losta Bay, Bozburun Peninsula, Asiatic Turkey.[1][3]
