Seleucia

Seleucia was an ancient Greek city on the Mediterranean coast of Pamphylia, in Anatolia, approximately 15 km northeast of Side; the site is currently about 1k north of the village of Bucakşeyhler (also Bucakşıhler), approximately 12 km northeast of Manavgat, Antalya Province, Turkey. It is situated on a hilltop with steep escarpments on several sides making a strong defensive position. The track from the village has recently been clear felled but the main site is still within a mature pine forest. The German researcher Johannes Nollé has suggested, however, that the remains at this location are not those of Seleucia but rather those of Lyrba.

A proof that this alternative name "Lyrbe" is accepted by the authorities can be found on a sign photographed in the same year the picture illustrating this subject was taken. A picture of the notice is followed by a gallery of what seems to be more properly called Lyrbe.
