Search for inscriptions mentioning Lissa (Λισσ...) in the PHI Epigraphy database.

Modern Description: Site, now deserted, in Lycia; on the mainland N of Kapi Dagi, on the W side of the gulf of Fethiye, some 3 km inland from Sarsila Iskelesi. Lissa is mentioned only by Pliny (HN 5.101 hmmm, text corrupt). There is no coinage. The name and site are established by inscriptions found on the spot; these are decrees of the 3d c. B.C. dated by the regnal years of Ptolemy II. The site is close to a large lake, now reduced to a marsh; the acropolis is fortified by a wall and tower. There are a number of tombs, some rock-cut, some built, some sarcophagi. (G. E. BEAN)
