Reseña del editor:

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Magnesia ad Sipylum was a city of Lydia, situated about 65 km northeast of Smyrna (now Ä°zmir) on the river Hermus (now Gediz) at the foot of Mount Sipylus. Nowadays this is the location of Manisa in Turkey. A mention of the town wasn''t founded until 190 BC, when Antiochus the Great was defeated in the battle of Magnesia by the Roman consul Lucius Cornelius Scipio Asiaticus. It became a city of importance under the Roman dominion and, though nearly destroyed by an earthquake in the reign of Tiberius, was restored by that emperor and flourished through the Roman empire. It was one of the few towns in this part of Anatolia which remained prosperous under the Turkish rule. There are two famous relics of antiquity. The first is the Niobe of Sipylus (Aglayan Kaya), a natural rock formation, on the lowest slopes of the mountains in the middle of town. The second is a carving, allegedly of Cybele (Suratlu Tash) about 100 meters up the mountain about 6 km east of the town.
