"As one of the largest necropoles in Anatolia..."
Juliopolis Ancient City Necropolis consists of necropolis areas located on both sides of Aladağ Stream.
Archaeological and anthropological studies on the graves have shown that this ancient cemetery started to be used chronologically from the Hellenistic period, as one of the largest necropoles in Anatolia. Its use was intensive in the Early Roman Imperial Period, and it continued until the end of the Late Antiquity.
Scientific examination of the archaeological artifacts and skeletal remains unearthed during the regular salvage excavations by the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations (AMM) in recent years is significant in the context of Anatolian Cultural History and World Cultural Heritage. From this standpoint, the Juliopolis Project primarily intends to continue research to deepen scientific research on the Ancient City and Necropolis by fulfilling the perspective and requirements of the contemporary scientific approach. It also targets the creation of a suitable base for the ongoing and designed studies.
