Sanctuary of Zeus Stratios/Labrandeus that belonged to the Carian city of Mylasa, with which it was linked by a sacred way (4th century BC). It includes an Ionic peripteral temple of Zeus, a terrace, stoas, a building known as oikoi (perhaps a prytaneion and hall for ritual banquets of the priesthood), and the so-called androns, possibly banqueting areas for high dignitaries and the royal family of Caria, as well as two propyla. Andron Alpha (A), which also had windows and was built by the Hekatomnidan dynast Idrieus (351-344 BC) is the best preserved. Andron Beta (B), which is earlier, was commissioned by Mausolos (377-351 BC), according to the inscription on its architrave. Some buildings, such as the baths and Andron Gamma (Ã) were built in the Roman era.
