Issos-Epiphaneia, situated in Cilicia Pedias, is a historically rich city in the Erzin district of Hatay, with a strategic location facilitating trade between Anatolia and Syria-Mesopotamia. Inhabited since Prehistoric times, it boasts structures like a theatre, bouleuterion–odeon, temple, and basilica-church, witnessing events like Alexander the Great’s victory over Darius III in 333 BC. The city’s features include aqueducts, a port settlement on the Burnaz coast, and various archaeological studies exploring architecture, artefacts, mosaics, and cultural heritage management.

This event will be presented by Banu Özdilek, Associate Professor at Hatay Mustafa Kemal University.

Registration is required for both in-person and online attendance.
