). Now Gunik; the most famous city of Lycia,
standing on the west bank of the river of the same name, sixty stadia from its mouth. Twice in
the course of its history it sustained sieges, which terminated in the self-destruction of the
inhabitants with their property, first against the Persians under Harpagus, and long
afterwards against the Romans under Brutus. The city was never restored after its destruction
on the latter occasion. Xanthus was rich in temples and tombs, and other monuments of a most
interesting character, and several important remains of its works of art are now exhibited in
the British Museum.
