The remains of the Hellensitic-Roman and Byzantine city lay within it. It has been the subject of systematic research since 1957, and is particularly famous for the great necropolis, one of the largest and best preserved in Asia Minor, and for several important monumental complexes such as the Theatre, the Large Baths, the Via di Frontino and the Martyrion dell’Apostolo Filippo.
