View on the road to the ruins of the ancient city of Banda Maybe Cyzikus may isteyenleriniz. A solemn sorrow of fate that greeted visitors to the ancient city gezdikçe cilvesiyle also can not help thinking about for a long time on the changes experienced. Çağınının huge amount of very bright white marble floors and stairs of a temple, so almost nothing except frustrated. However, a closer inspection of this marble, even here, in the splendor of a time that farketmenizi.
Cyzikus have a lot to tell about the history books. Today, the Earth was once known as the Peninsula Kapıdağ Arctonessus (Bear Island) was an island called. Bridges connecting the mainland from the colonists established a strategic point Cyzikus'u Milet'ten 756'da BC. Apparently at that time ibaretmiş history repeats itself. BC came back to the city of Miletos 675'de a more established. According to Greek mythology, Jason and the famous Gold Lambskin searching for ways to Argonatlar'ın Cyzikus'a also fallen. Cyzikus people flood in history deserved reputation greatly indebted to the first examples of the coin.
Sitting on the steps of an abandoned temple, once this part of Turkey is very difficult to imagine that the Empire of Persia. However, smart Cyzikus Feudal Lords rebelled against the Persians acted and refused to participate in other Greek city-states in 494 BC, the rebels who escaped the massacre. According to the records of the largest tribute Cyzikus ödermiş Persians. Later today the Pergamene krallarıyla Bergaması entered a tight alliance. In fact, this co-operation which he advanced as far as the king of Pergamum, I. Attalus, Apollonis married a woman named Cyzikuslu. In this region, known to have built the first temple in the Apollonis'in son.


Still preserved its importance in Roman times a şehirmiş Cyzikus. In 124 the Emperor Hadrian, who visited the city began to have for him to complete the temple in 167 has been bestowed on his successor Aurelius'a. At one time the largest temple in Anatolia, only the floor of the structure, it is also, unfortunately, a bad situation from reaching the present day. Yet many people to the list of Seven Wonders of the Ancient World Temple of Artemis at Ephesus Temple of Hadrian Cyzikus'taki thinks is more appropriate. Some people say the eighth wonder of the world is still here.
No matter how big and powerful, even the collapse of Cyzikus lived. The Arabs who captured the city of Istanbul, they will 673'de here used as a base for attacks. Damaged by earthquakes in a row have Bizanslardan Seljuks. In 1204 the city administration to Istanbul again 1092'de Byzantines subjugated by the fourth crusade army. Byzantines, Latins 1268'de out when you show the date of the most spectacular in the back There is nothing. Large part of the 15th century, the Temple of Hadrian, still ayaktaymış, but the stones are spread around the building is used as building material shrunk. Perhaps this is why in 1837, a Western traveler here, "a heap of ruins" has described as. Today the region is possible to see traces of many structures, tapınığın.
Erdek the fact that it was known then ARTAC founded by Miletos chance or misfortune, but more honest Cyzikus'tan been managed by administrators. 499'da BC, the Greeks against the Persians in 494 BC side should have been included in this sin be paid for destroyed. However, had the last laugh Erdek. Because no one more toparlanamamış Cyzikus, but even in the 20th century Erdek has found himself a new life. Today, near the ferry terminal Cyzikus'tan exhibiting works from the marble has a small open-air museum. Lion-headed cocks deserves special attention in these works are impressive. Unfortunately, there are 2500-year history, witnesses who do not respect, the names of them wrote historical works.
