CRETO´POLIS

CRETO´POLIS (Κρητόπολις, Ptol. 5.5; Κρητῶν πόλις, Plb. 5.72). Ptolemy places Cretopolis in the part of Cabalia, which he attaches to Pamphylia. Garsyeris encamped at Cretopolis before he attempted the pass of Climax [CLTMAX]; and Cretopolis is, therefore, west of the Climax, and in the Milyas, as Polybius says (5.72). Cretopolis is twice mentioned by Diodorus (18.44, 47). The site is unknown.
