Settlements > Blaundos



Blaundos was an ancient city founded by the successors of Alexander the Great. The city is about 30 kilometres (19 mi) south of Uşak, Turkey, near the village Sülümenli. Blaundos is situated on a rocky place in the valley of the Meandre River, now known as the Büyük Menderes River. The city is protected by a peak, and the only access from the north is protected by a gate, reminiscent of Hellenistique and Roman times.

The city has known major developments during the Hellenistique, Roman and Byzantine eras. It is possible that the city was populated by the veterans of the Roman army. The last records dates from the 8th century. The village was described by the French traveller Charles Texier, 1834, but it was never subjected to any investigation. Among the monuments that still are visible today, are the north entrance, the stage of a temple dedicated to Ceres, where all elements around the foundation come together. A piece of the columns that circled the temple and the branches of a large building on the far side of the site. Between 2000 and 2002 the site was investigated by the German Institute of Archaeology.
