Aizanoi, Latinized as Aezani was an ancient city in western Anatolia. Located in what is now Çavdarhisar, Kütahya Province, its ruins are situated astride the River Penkalas, some 1000m above sea level. The city was an important political and economic centre in Roman times; surviving remains from the period include a well-preserved Temple of Zeus, unusual combined theatre-stadium complex, and macellum inscribed with the Price Edict of Diocletian. The city fell into decline in Late Antiquity. Later serving as a citadel, in 2012 the site was submitted for inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage List.HistorySettlement in the area is known from the Bronze Age. The city may have derived its name from Azan, one of three sons of Arcas and the nymph Erato, legendary ancestors of the Phrygians. During the Hellenistic period the city changed hands between the Kingdom of Pergamum and the Kingdom of Bithynia, before being bequeathed to Rome by the former in 133 BC. It continued to mint its own coins. Its monumental buildings date from the early Empire to the 3rd century.

  • Abdul Rahman From The Ancient City, Temple Of Zeus, The Ancient Theater. A place that must be visited. Very high historic ambience. More needs. Although not yet restored stage is very nice. Especially great to go down to the Temple of zeus.

  • Excavation work continues. Protection and must be visited. The stones in the bridge, especially how much I winced when I saw that eroded.

  • I've dealt with a lot more than I expected. Abdul Rahman; Temple, theatre, baths, market, shops, a huge ancient city with bridge. And texture very much intact. Especially perfect shrine, largely failed until the present day with the lower floor and columns.
