KARMYLESSOS Lycia, Turkey.

Mentioned only by Strabo (665), who calls it an occupied site in a ravine on Mt. Antikragos. No real evidence has been found for the exact location. The elevated plain between Fethiye and Kaya (formerly Makri and Levisi) has been suggested. Here there are a number of rock-cut tombs and sarcophagi of Lycian type, but no sign of an ancient town.
