Atarneus, Mysia, c. 400 - 350 B.C.
|Other| |Mysia|, |Atarneus,| |Mysia,| |c.| |400| |-| |350| |B.C.|, Atarneus, also known as Atarna, was in the region of Aeolis but most numismatic references place the city in Mysia. It was on the mainland opposite the island of Lesbos, on the road from Adramyttium to the plain of the Caicus. Atarneus was founded by Cilicians during the 5th century B.C., it received many Chian colonists. The city is best known for its association with Aristotle. After the death of his father, Aristotle was cared for and educated by Proxenus of Atarneus, possibly his uncle. At the Academy, Aristotle made friends with Hermias, who became the ruler of Atarneus. After the death of Plato, Aristotle stayed with Hermias, and married Hermias' niece Pythia. Atarneus was probably deserted completely in the 1st century A.D. due to an epidemic.
