Termessos

Termessos was a city built at an altitude of more than 1000 meters in the Taurus Mountains. What is known of its history commences principally at the time that Alexander the Great surrounded the city in 333 BC, which he likened to an eagle's nest and failed to conquer. Arrian, one of the ancient historians who dealt with this event and recorded the strategic importance of Termessos, notes that even a small force could easily defend it due to the insurmountable natural barriers surrounding the city.

The end of Termessos came when its aqueduct was crushed in an earthquake, destroying the water supply to the city.
