Pitane, Mysia, c. 4th Century B.C.
|Other| |Mysia|, |Pitane,| |Mysia,| |c.| |4th| |Century| |B.C.|, Pitane was in the Delian League in the 5th century B.C. When the Athenian empire collapsed at the end of the 5th century B.C., Persia took control of Mysia, but allowed the cities considerable autonomy. In 335 B.C., Alexander's general Parmenion laid siege to the city, but the Persian general Memnon of Rhodes saved it. Pitane maintained its independence as a free city throughout the Hellenistic period. In the mid-second century B.C., Pergamon arbitrated a dispute between Pitane and Mytilene on nearby Lesbos over territory Pitane had purchased from the Seleucid king Antiochus I Soter. In 84 B.C. Mithridates VI while evading the Roman general Gaius Flavius Fimbria fled to Pitane, where he was besieged by Fimbria before escaping to Mytilene by sea.
