Modern Description: Founded by Aeolians from Mytilene c. 700 BC. Flourished mainly during the 6th century BC. In the 4th century BC its inhabitants moved to the newly founded neighbouring city of Alexandria.
The acropolis is located on the top of a high hill (Çıgrı Dağ) which offers a wonderful view of the coast of the Troad, the Scamander plain (Kumkale Köy) and the Ida mountain range (Kas Dağ). The fortification of polygonal plan (late 4th century BC), with gateways and 11 towers, is well preserved. On the contrary, the remains of an Archaic Aeolian temple, perhaps dedicated to Apollo (c. 600 BC, architectural members in the Istanbul Museum), are in poor condition. In earlier excavations clusters of Archaic and Classical houses and a street traversing the city from N to S were found. The cemeteries with small tumuli spread around and outside the walls. There is one large tumulus delimited by stones on the south side of the city.
