Historical background


LYDIE - Tralles

(Second - first century BC)

Tralles was located on a hill overlooking the Lower Meander plateau. The city was large and successful thanks to its surrounding fertile plains. She took a moment the name of Seleucia. After the Battle of Magnesia in 190 BC it passed the Seleucid domination to that of the kings of Pergamon with the rest of Lydia. She had an important cistophorique mint. On the death of Attalus III, the city became part of the new province of Asia and achieved significant development in Roman times with the worship of Zeus Larasios.
