|Lycia|, |Lycian| |League,| |Masikytes,| |Lycia,| |c.| |27| |-| |20| |B.C.|, Lycia had not been a sovereign state since its defeat by the Carian King Mausolus in 362 B.C. In 168 B.C., however, the Roman Republic made Lycia an autonomous Roman protectorate governed by the Lycian League. Lycia lost its freedom when Claudius incorporated into the Empire and joined it with Pamphylia as a Roman province in 43 A.D. The democratic principles of the Lycian League influenced the framers of the United States Constitution.
