Baptae (from βάπτω, to wash), a name formerly applied to the priests of the Thracian goddess Cotys, or Cotytto, and was derived from a practice in their festivals of washing in tepid water. Buttmann, however, in his Mythologus denies that the name Baptae was applied to the priests referred to. SEE COTYS.
