  Roman Provincial    >>  PONTUS   >>   Amasia
 

Pontus, Amasia, the birthplace of Mithradates the Great and of Strabo, was a strongly fortified town on the river Iris.

Located in modern day Turkey Amasia is described by Price and Trell as one of the most impressive sites in Turkey. According to Price and Trell, the sanctuary to Zeus Statios, the chief deity of Amasia, was not actually at Amasia itself, but to the East, behind a mountain, on the high plateau at Buyuk Evlia. The great monumental alter to Zeus Stratios is always accompanied by a tree or flower, which would seem to have some connection with the cult.
