Андриаке / Турция
Andriake was in ancient times the port of Myra, located on the estuary of Andrakos in Lycia, today's Turkey. First mentioned in writing was the place in 197 BC when Antiochus III., King of the Seleucid Empire, conquered the city. Also in the Acts of the Bible the name of this city is mentioned. The significance of this now Turkish city is due to its location on one of the most important maritime routes. In the Roman Empire Andriake next to Patara was the most important port for grain fleets from Egypt, first for Rome, since the 4th century AD increasingly for Constantinople.
