), a town of Carlia, not far from Aatbanda, on the left bank of the Maeander, and apparently on or near a hill of the same name (Strab. xiv. p.650
; Plin. Nat. 37.25
). Near this town the Rhodians gained a victory over the Carians (Plb. 30.5
; Liv. 45.25
; corp. Ptol. 5.2.19
; Plin. Nat. 5.29
; Hierocl. 688).
The ancient remains near Karpusli
probably mark the site of Orthosia (Leake, Asia Minor,
p. 234); though others, regarding them as belonging to Alabanda, identify it with Dsheni-sheer.
