or Kydai (Damlıboğaz) Turkey.
Caria, 7 km W of Milâs, in the valley of the Sariçay,
the ancient Kybersos. The city appears in the Athenian
tribute lists, with a normal tribute of only one-fifteenth
of a talent, but reassessed at one-third in 425 B.C. Later
Hydai was united in a sympolity with Mylasa. A handmade jug found there is dated to the 3d millennium. The
extant remains consist only of a ruined circuit wall, a
few plain rock tombs, and on the plain below a collapsed
building which has been thought to be the Temple of
Apollo and Artemis, the principal deities of the city.
