KIZILTEPE Turkey.

A fortified site on the hill of this name in Caria, ca. 1.6 km SW of Kaunos. It is possible that this was the site that appears in the Athenian tribute lists as Karbasyanda by Kaunos, with a tribute of one-sixth of a talent; in the inscriptions of Kaunos the name is spelt with a pi. It is not otherwise mentioned. For a time in the Hellenistic period it was a deme of Kaunos. There is no direct evidence for placing it at Kiziltepe.
