To the north of Elaiussa Sebaste we drive to the mysterious ancient city Kanytelleis of Olba, 3rd century BC, on the way to the well known ancient Roman city Corycus. Kanytelleis is a wonderful and mysterious site to the mountain side. The site includes rock tombs and a wonderful Hellenistic tower, besides many more remains in the area.
Olba was a city of Cetis in Cilicia Aspera, later forming part of Isauria; it had a temple of Zeus, whose priests were once kings of the country, and became a Roman colony. Strabo and Ptolemy call it Olbasa. Its ruins, north of Silifke in the Turkish province of Mersin.
