Two Milestones on the Road from Myra to LimyraThe author presents two milestones, each with three inscriptions dating from the 3rd and 4th centuries AD. The one was found in the bed of the river Başgözçay, near the modern town of Turunçova, the other in the Church of Nicholas in Myra. Both milestones once stood on the road from Myra to Limyra. In a detailed commentary Takmer then undertakes to reconstruct possible routes of this road using topographical, archaeological, epigraphical and literary evidence to support his view.
