Patara. Turkey. On the left is the restored ancient bouleuterion where the elected Assembly (Synedrion) of the Lycian League met. In the background is the ancient theatre, originally built during the Hellenistic period and then modified by the Romans. The ancient Lycian seaport Capital city of Patara, was one of the six principle cities of Lycia (Lycian League) and the site of a major sanctuary of Apollo, possibly second only to that of Delphi.
