Click here for my page with very many Turkish cities ---OR--- Other antique cities

When planning sights for my October 2015 holiday I came across a site which opened: “It may be hard to believe, but most of the well-known travel guides to Turkey do not mention Stratonicea.“ They were right. As a result I did not expect too much. And how I was wrong. This is a delightful “ancient city”, mixed with some remains from Ottoman times.
From the Wikipedia: “Stratonicea (Greek: Στρατoνικεια or Στρατoνικη; or per Stephanus of Byzantium: Στρατονίκεια) – also transliterated as Stratonikeia, Stratoniceia , Stratoniki, and Stratonike and Stratonice; earlier Idrias and Chrysaoris; and for a time Hadrianopolis – was one of the most important towns in the interior of Caria, Anatolia, situated on the east-southeast of Mylasa, and on the south of the river Marsyas; its site is now located at the present village of Eskihisar, Muğla Province, Turkey. It is situated at a distance of 1 km (0.62 mi) from the intercity road D.330 that connects the district center of Yatağan with Bodrum and Milas, shortly before Yatağan Power Plant if one has taken departure from the latter towns.” According to Strabo, it was founded by the Seleucid king Antiochus I Soter (281–261 BC), who named it after his wife Stratonice.
The rest you can look up for yourself.

I added captions where possible, but there are parts that I could not identify.
