Modern Description: Site in Cilicia Aspera, 25 km W of Anamur. Recorded as a city with harbor by Pseudo-Skylax in the 4th c. B.C., later a station under a Ptolemaic hegemon. It is mentioned in the Stadiasmus as a chorion, and about A.D. 200 as a harbor of Lamos; probably the region rather than the city (IGR III, 838). Virtually nothing remains of the city apart from some scattered blocks among the houses and a milestone of A.D. 137. (G. E. BEAN)
