Ancient City Of Arsameia

Located in the Kahta district of Adıyaman, the Ancient City of Arsameia features ruins on the Nemrut route. The city was once the capital of the Commagene civilization and was also known as the "Fortress". The city was used for defense, and tunnels were dug throughout the city for religious purposes.

The road to the Ancient City of Arsameia consists of a narrow pathway with a statue and a water cistern. As you walk upwards, you come across the tomb of Mithridates I, who was the father of Antiochus I and responsible for the golden age of the Kingdom of Commagene in the Ancient City of Arsameia. The tomb features the largest Greek inscription in Anatolia, which was placed on it by Antiochus I and sheds light on the history of Arsameia. The inscription indicates that the Ancient City of Arsameia was founded by Arsames, an ancestor of Antiochus I, and it offers other historical information on the mausoleum and the civilization of the time, including that the region was the summer capital of the kingdom and home to the tomb of Mithridates I.
