Manavgat

According to the recent researches, the history goes back to the 11th C BC and the first settlement was done here as one of the Greek colonies  around present Side today. As we can  understand from Hittite cuneiform inscriptions, the area was called as Pamphylia. In 6th century BC, the area was ruled by the king Coresos of Lydia and later invaded by the Persians which lasted about three hundred years occupation until the time of Alexander the Great. In 334 BC  Alexander liberated the whole area, when he passed away, his generals shared the whole empire and Pamphylia,Lycia and upper Phrygia were given to  general Antigone but later another general Selecuid captured the region as the king of Syria. In 188 BC, Pamphylia was added to kingdom of Pergamum by the Roman senate after the naval battle over the Rhodes around Side. When the kingdom of Pergamon was gifted  by Pergamene king  Antiochus III in 133 BC,  the Roman period began. In 78 BC Roman general Pompei made the permanent sovereignty of Rome as to clean all the pirates in the region of Pamphylia.Marcus Antonius  gifted the region to Cleopatra as the wedding gift in 33 BC so it was ruled by the Egyptians for a short time but Augustus added the region to Rome after winning the victory over Marc Anthony and Cleopatra. In Roman period,  from 27 BC to 192 AD Pamphylia has been one of the most important income sources of Roman empire with it natural sources, slaves and agricultural products.
