The city, which is located within the boundaries of the Alanya district of Antalya province, was established on the summit of a hill about 400m above the seashore, which the locals call Asar Tepe. We may presume the ruins that have been preserved until today are concentrated in this area and that would be the city center.
The cities of Laertes, Nouloi (Naula), Korakesion, and Hamaxia are on the west side of the city while the cities Iatape, Selinus, and Antiochia ad Cragum are on the east side.
The city’s location provided great advantages in terms of security and trade. Wine and olive-oil obtained from many workshops were exported with the amphorae which were produced in the city.
