Amos Bay

One can reach the remains of the ancient city of Amos from the northwest of Kumlubük cove, the hill called Asarcık located on the south of the steep beach. Amos is up on a hill hosting an amphitheatre, a temple and some pedestals. Bilge Umar notes that Amos has certain meanings in the Hellenic language. He believes that it was impossible to name a city as Amos, and so it is a word from Luwi or Karia languages from 2000 B.C. It is argued that it is derived from the Mother Goddess temple. However, there is yet another very interesting argument regarding the name Amos. Amos is, at the same time, the name of one of the 12 Minor Prophets among 55 prophets deemed as holy by the Hebrews, mentioned in Tanakh among more than 700 prophets cited in the Old Testament. Furthermore, the name Amos is found in the Ugaritic texts, allegedly the origin of Hebrew, discovered in 1928 near Latakia in Syria. It is still not clear when this city, which is not referred to by the ancient time historians, was founded. Notwithstanding, the remains of the city were found on the hills of Hisarburnu. In the northeast, the remains of the amphitheatre can still be seen with its seating tears. In addition, the walls of the Cavea reaching 6 meters high still stand. One of the three amphitheatres facing Rhodes is in Amos. During his excavations, Prof. George E. Bean revealed (1948) four inscriptions stating the conditions of three separate tenancy contracts dating back to 200 B.C. According to the inscriptions, the people of Amos worshipped Apollon with the name ‘Apollo Samnaios’. The name Samnaios should be specific to the people of Amos as there is no other reference to this name anywhere else. The Altar of Dionysos is such as to prove an intense wine production in Amos. Coexistence of two opposing cults, namely Dionysos and Apollon, is above all an indication that Amos is a typical city of Caria. The walls surrounding the city are 2 meters wide, 3-4 meters high at some places. The city walls are fortified by bastions from time to time and the main gate in the north is still quite solid today. Apart from the city walls in the northwest, the necropolis stretching out downhill attracts attention. Here, the tombs are Caria-type tombs and most of them are in the form of funerary chambers.
