Lucius Verus, 7 March 161 - February 169 A.D., Caesarea, Cappadocia
Mt. Erciyes (Argaeus to the Romans) a massive stratovolcano 25 km south of Kayseri, Turkey, is the highest mountain in central Anatolia (3,916 meters, 12,848 ft). It may have last erupted in 253 B.C. Strabo wrote that the summit was never free from snow and those few who ascended it reported seeing both the Black Sea to the north and the Mediterranean to the south on clear days.
