Near Sütlğen, in the
mountains ca. 25 km N of Kaş. Mentioned only by Ptolemy and Hierokles and in the episcopal Notitiae
is no evidence that Nisa was ever a member of the Lycian
League; her one known coin (Sammlung von Aulock
no. 4373), of the 2d c. B.C., is of nonfederal type.
The ruins are quite considerable but poorly preserved.
They include a theater and a stadium; above the latter
is a paved agora with a stoa and a number of inscribed
bases. The city wall is partly preserved, in good squared
blocks. The necropolis, outside the wall on the W, contains sarcophagi and a few built tombs.
