Historical background


(2nd - 1st century BC.)

Bargylia was located at the bottom of the Gulf of Iasos 30 kilometers from Mylassa, located according to Strabo between Myndos and Caryander. The city was famous because it is there that the companion of Bellerophon would have been killed with a hoof by Pegasus. The city was famous for its sanctuary of Artemis Kindyas, bust of the goddess which adorns the right of Hellenistic coins.
