This elevated site was also well-provided with natural spring water, making it an ideal choice for settlement. The city, which was probably initially inhabited in the 5th c BC, is first mentioned historically in connection with the campaigns of Alexander the Great, who defeated the Sagalassians in 333 BC. In the 2nd c AD in particular, Sagalassos experienced an enormous increase in prosperity, coinciding with the Emperor Hadrian’s selection of the city as the centre of the Pisidian Imperial cult. First rediscovered by a French traveller in 1706, Sagalassos was visited by a number of Western explorers throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. Exploratory excavation began in 1987, culminating in an intensive excavation campaign at Sagalassos initiated in 1993 under the direction of the Belgian archaeologist Marc Waelkens. Two decades later, enough has been uncovered to reveal that the city was a jewel not only amongst the Pisidian cities but also in Asia Minor in general. (Quelle: Verlagstext).
