Local nameLyrbe (Seleucia)
LocationAntalya, Turkey

Seleucia was an ancient Greek city on the Mediterranean coast of Pamphylia, in Anatolia, approximately 15 km northeast of Side; the site is currently about 1k north of the village of Bucakşeyhler, approximately 12 km northeast of Manavgat, Antalya Province, Turkey. It is situated on a hilltop with steep escarpments on several sides making a strong defensive position. The track from the village has recently been clear felled but the main site is still within a mature pine forest. The German researcher Johannes Nollé has suggested, however, that the remains at this location are not those of Seleucia but rather those of Lyrba.A proof that this alternative name "Lyrbe" is accepted by the authorities can be found on a sign photographed in the same year the picture illustrating this subject was taken. A picture of the notice is followed by a gallery of what seems to be more properly called Lyrbe,
