), a town in Caria, on the eastern bank of the river Harpasus, a tributary of the Maeander. (Ptol. 5.2.19
; Steph. B. sub voce Plin. Nat. 5.29
; Hierocl. p. 688.)
The ruins found opposite to Nasli,
at a place called Arpas Kalessi,
undoubtedly belong to Harpasa. (Fellowes, Discov. in Lyc.
p. 51; Leake, Asia Minor,
p. 249; Richter, Wallfahrten,
p. 540.) Pliny mentions a wonderful rock in its neighbourhood, which moved on being pressed with a finger, but did not yield to the pressure of the whole body.
