To the W
of Sultanhisar, 5 km from Nysa. The city was founded,
probably together with Nysa, by Antiochos Soter I in
the first half of the 3d c. B.C. Strabo, who was a student
at Nysa, mentions Acharaca, especially the sacred cave
and the temple. According to the remains, the temple is
peripteral, in the Doric order with 6 by 12 columns. It
is probably Hellenistic although Roman capitals found
in the foundations indicate reconstruction. Byzantine additions suggest that the building became a Christian
church. In addition to the temple, ancient walls and fortifications are visible, and the remains of a bridge in the
direction of Nysa.
