Site in Pisidia close
to Korkuteli (Istanoz), now thought to be Isinda rather
than the site at Yazir, formerly so identified. The situation is an important one, on the route from Pamphylia
to Caria. In 189 B.C. Manlius Vulso, on his march
through Asia, found the Isindians besieged by the Termessians; at their request he raised the siege and fined
the Termessians 50 talents.
The remains are scanty. On a high craggy hill on one
side of a glen are rock cuttings and a rock tomb without
inscription; on the lower hills in the vicinity are the ruins
of extensive walls of soft stone and burnt brick. An inscription in Kişla village mentions a Clarian festival;
this agrees with the claim of Isinda, on her coins, to be
an Ionian colony.
