A conspicuous peak in Caria, 9 km N of Marmaris, where the
remains are probably those of a Peraean deme of Rhodes
attached to the city of Kamiros which seems to be mentioned (the MS readings vary greatly) by Mela (1.84)
and Pliny (HN 5.107
), who establish the approximate
location. On the summit of the peak is a walled citadel
with a small fort at either end, and on the steep slope
of the hill are the closely packed ruins of a considerable
town, built on terraces. In the village of Ovacik at the
foot of the hill was found an epitaph of a Euthenite.
