Historical background


(5th - 4th century AD)

Selgé was on the banks of the Eurymedon about forty kilometers from Aspendos, whose coinage she sometimes imitates. The inhabitants of this rich and prosperous agricultural land claimed descent from the Lacedaemonians, but had abandoned Greek in favor of a Pisidian dialect. The Selgians were renowned fighters. The city remained under Persian rule until the arrival of Alexander the Great in 333 BC..
