Miletos Necropolis

Miletos Necropolis
To the south of the town walls of Miletus lay a large necropolis, remains of which extend over a considerable area. These burial grounds extend southwest from the gate for a distance of some 800m/880yds and was part of the Archaic settlement of Miletus. Its acropolis formed part of the 63m/207ft Kalabak Tepe (Cup Hill) some 1.5km/1mile from the theater. The seashore lay barely 100m/110yds from the foot of the hill.

On the south side of Kalabak Tepe a section of the town wall some 3-4m/10-13ft thick and originally over 12m/40ft high has been uncovered. The pottery finds have enabled the archeologists to date the remains to ca. 650 B.C. A northeast and a southwest gate, another smaller gate and a tower have also been found in this section.
