Colophon was located on the banks of the Hales and calamon, down to the sea, midway between Teos and Ephesus. The city was said to have been founded by Andraemon Pylos, whose tomb was nearby. Gyges, king of Lydia, captured Colophon in the sixth century BC It then came under Persian rule was part of the Ionian revolt and was destroyed by the Persians.
