HYDISOS (Karacahisar) Turkey.

20 km S of Milâs. The city appears (the name only partially preserved) in the early Athenian tribute lists, with a tribute of one talent, and is recorded by Pliny and Ptolemy. The coins are Imperial only. The position is a strong one on two summits, defended by a wall with towers well preserved in parts, of early Hellenistic date. The location of the theater is recognizable between the summits, also that of the agora adjoined by stoas. The site is identified by an inscription and coins found on the spot.


L. Robert, AJA 39 (1935) 339-40.
