Modern Description: Castabus is located at the site of Pazarlik on Mount Eren Dağ, where there is the sanctuary of the healing deity Molpadia-Hemithea (demi-goddess) (4th-2nd century BC), which belonged to the chora of Bybassus. The site's name echoes the goddess's festival, the Kastabeia, for which the theatre was built on the hillside. Only the foundations of the 4th-century BC temple have survived on a terrace. The structure is surrounded by a peculiar peribolos on three sides, with small rectangular buildings of unknown use in the interior.
