|Euromos was an important city in ancient times, after Mylasa (now Milas).
The name of the city was “Cyramos” or “Hyramos”
in the 5th century BC. Euromos is mentioned in inscriptions and by
ancient writers from the second century B.C. The Greek form
“Euromos” meaning “Strong” is likely to be
adapted as part of the policy of Hellenization by Mausolos.
Although the city is ruined the remains of the Temple of Zeus in
Euromos are among some of the best preserved monuments in Asia.
It is of the Corinthian order with 6 by 11 columns and dates from
the second century AD, no later than the time of Hadrian (A.D.
117-138).There are remnants of the ancient city walls on the hill above the temple and in a recess of the
hill nearby the theatre is barely discernible through olive grove that now has taken over the site.
