Modern Description: Founded by King Antigonos Monophthalmos in the late 4th century BC and called Antigonia. Renamed Alexandria by Lysimachos, King of Thrace, after the battle of Ipsus in 301 BC. In the 3rd century BC it passed to the kingdom of Pergamon and later to the rule of Rome, maintaining a certain autonomy and some privileges on account of its harbour. It enjoyed a heyday during the Roman era.
Two granite columns (h. 11 m) visible in the harbour came from Alexandria in Egypt. Inside the extensive fortified enceinte a few remains of Roman public buildings, such as a Doric temple, thermae and the theatre built by Herodes Atticus (AD 103-177) are preserved. Building material from the city was taken to Istanbul in the 17th century.
