Biblis Tholus is an extinct Martian volcano located at 2.7°N, 235.4°E, one of two volcanoes near the center of the Tharsismarker volcanism. Along with Ulysses Patera, it is almost midway between Olympus Monsmarker and Tharsis Montesmarker. It is approximately 170 kilometers (106 miles) long and 100 kilometers (60 miles) wide, rising about 3 kilometers (2 miles) from its surroundings.

In the middle of the volcano is a caldera, named Biblis Patera, possibly formed as the result of collapse of the magma chamber during eruptions of the volcano. The caldera is 53 kilometers (33 miles) in diameter and four kilometers (2.5 miles) in depth.
