Σέλγη). One of the chief of the independent mountain cities of Pisidia, stood on the south side of Mount Taurus, on the Eurymedon, just where the river breaks through the mountain chain. Its people were the most warlike of all the Pisidians, and claimed descent from the Lacedemonians, even inscribing the name Λακεδαίμων on their coins (Strabo, p. 570). Ruins of the ancient city still exist.
