About Blaundus

Blaundus , also known as Blaundos, was founded sometime in the Hellenistic period and grew to become an important Roman city in Asia Minor, presently Anatolia, Turkey. Its symbol was a "double horse". Several civilisations left their mark in Blaundus, but little remains. Visitors can see the ruins of an entrance gate, a temple, a theatre, rock tombs and walls.

The last record of Blaundus dates from the 12th century.
