Antiokheia Archaeological Site is 58 km (36 mile) far to Aydin centurum. It is at 500 m east of Çiftlik Village in Kuyucak District of Aydın. Antiokheia is an ancient city established at the foot of Çul Mountain and at the shore of Dandalos Stream in Asartepe. Two sites named Symmaitos and Kranos were united by Antiokhos Soter, the king of Seleukid, (B.C 281-261) and the city took the name of the king. We get information about the city from Strabon. Strabon mentions about Men tempest in Antiokheian’s country. Strabon also states that the famous philosopher Diotrephes lived in Antiokheia, as a very delicious fig was grown in this city in Archaic Period.
