Historical background


(5th century BC)

Célenderis, an important coastal city of Cilicia Trachea, located halfway between Nagidos and Aphrodisias, is said to have been founded by Sandokos. It was then colonized by the Samians. Its Persian standard coinage began in the middle of the 5th century and lasted until the arrival of Alexander the Great in Asia Minor..
