Ariassos, Pisidia, 1st Century A.D.
Ariassos, Pisidia was founded under the Seleucid Empire in the 3rd century B.C. In 189 B.C. it passed to the Kingdom of Pergamum, the last king of which, Attalus III left his kingdom the Rome in 133 B.C. It was mentioned in about 100 B.C. by Artemidorus Ephesius, who was quoted by Strabo a century later. The only further mentions are by Ptolemy in the 2nd century A.D. and in lists of Christian dioceses. Under Octavian Augustus, Ariassos was made part of the Roman province of Galatia. It was later within the late Roman province of Pamphylia Secunda. The ruins are mainly Roman and Byzantine. The best preserved is the 3rd-century A.D. triple-arched city entrance once surmounted by four statues. Other buildings include a nymphaeum and baths. There is an abundance of funerary monuments.
