Turkey - Pamphylian archaeological sites 2013

In ancient geography, Pamphylia was the region in the south of Asia Minor, between Lycia and Cilicia, extending from the Mediterranean to Mount Taurus (modern day Antalya province, Turkey)...
Under the Roman administration the term Pamphylia was extended so as to include Pisidia and the whole tract up to the frontiers of Phrygia and Lycaonia, and in this wider sense it is employed by Ptolemy...
The first historical mention of "Pamphylians" is among the group of nations subdued by the Mermnad kings of Lydia; they afterwards passed in succession under the dominion of the Persian and Hellenistic monarchs. After the defeat of Antiochus III in 190 BC they were included among the provinces annexed by the Romans to the dominions of Eumenes of Pergamum...
The Pamphilians became largely hellenized in Roman times, and have left magnificent memorials of their civilization at Perga, Aspendos and Side...

Bonsoir Lazslo! je vote pour les photos 29 et 30 car ce n'est pas évident de photographier les dessins qui apparaissent sur la pierre ainsi que sur la colone, j'ai aimé l'ensemble de tes photos que tu as fait sur ce site archéologique... bien à toi... Huxusko.

Very interesting historical tour. Ancient Turkey is astounding. Very good photographs.

Bardzo interesująca historyczna wycieczka. Antyczna Turcja jest zdumiewająca. Bardzo dobre fotografie. Aspendos i Side robią wrażenie.
