|After leaving Alakisla Bay one passes Tekerek Limani,
llgin Limani, and Kargili after which one arrives at Çökertme Bay, the
best anchorage here. This place is surrounded by pine and olive trees and
is sheltered against the winds. Inside the bay is Çökertme village, the
western side of which is a good anchorage.
Leaving Çökertme, one arrives at Çamalti Bay, the jetty for Ören where one may visit the ruins of Keramos. Keramos is 48 km from Milas and one can reach it by road as well. The modern town of Keramos is located on the ruins of Keramos. A city of Carian origin, the date of its foundation is unknown though we know of its existence from the 5th Century onward because it was a member of the Delian League. Ruled by the Persians and then Alexander and passed variously through the hands of Rhodes, Rome, and Byzantium.
At Keramos today one notices sound city walls and their
gates remaining from Hellenistic times here and there. The ancient
acropolis was between Mese Kayasi and Çamtepe. Outside the village at a
place called Bakicak is a marble platform surrounded by a wall. The
three blocks visible are all that remains of the foundations of the temple
of Zeus Khrsaoreus. There are also ruins of another temple, called
Kursunlu today. This temple, located at the foot of the acropolis hill
outside the city walls, is in a very ruined state. There are also remains
of many Roman and Byzantine buildings at Keramos whose functions can no
longer be discerned, though one of them was probably a basilica. On the
southern side of the city is a Byzantine church.
