  1. Tripolis

    Tripolis – also Neapolis, Apollonia, and Antoninopolis – was an ancient city of Phrygia, on the northern bank of the upper course of the Maeander, and on the road leading from Sardes by Philadelphia to Laodicea ad Lycum. It was situated 20 km to the northwest of Hierapolis, and is not mentioned by any writer before the time of Pliny, who treats it as a Lydian town, and says that it was washed by the Maeander. Ptolemy and Stephanus of Byzantium describe it as a Carian town, and the latter adds that in his time it was called Neapolis. Hierocles likewise calls it a Lydian town. Pliny also states that Apollonia was an alternate name for the city. The city minted coins in antiquity which bore the head of Leto. Ruins of it still exist near Yenicekent, a township in the Buldan district of Denizli Province, Turkey. The ruins mostly date from the Roman and Byzantine periods and include a theater, baths, city walls, and a necropolis.
