Ras al-Basit is a cape roughly 53km north of Latakia. It is the site of Hellenic Posideium. Evidence of settlement dates back to the Late Bronze Age, when it is likely to have been an Ugarit outpost.

The site is archaeologically important due to its longevity and strong ties with Phoenicia and Cyprus. The city thrives from the 3rd-6th centuries CE, during Roman and Byzantine occupation but was abandoned after the Arab conquest.

The site today is small, and has not been excavated since 2000.
