ORTHO´SIA (Ὀρθωσία), a town of Carlia, not far from Aatbanda, on the left bank of the Maeander, and apparently on or near a hill of the same name (Strab. xiv. p.650; Plin. Nat. 37.25). Near this town the Rhodians gained a victory over the Carians (Plb. 30.5; Liv. 45.25; corp. Ptol. 5.2.19; Plin. Nat. 5.29, 37.9, 25; Hierocl. 688). The ancient remains near Karpusli probably mark the site of Orthosia (Leake, Asia Minor, p. 234); though others, regarding them as belonging to Alabanda, identify it with Dsheni-sheer.
