|At the entrance to this bay is Dislice Island.
During the Persian invasions in 540 B.C., the Knidians sought to dig a
canal between Bencik and Küçükçati
on the other side as a defensive measure against the Persian armies and
turn their city into an island. An oracle was consulted who reportedly
said "If the gods had wanted, they would have made your city an island. Do
not pierce the isthmus."
Where upon they surrendered to the Persians-After leaving Bencik, we enter Hisarönü harbor where the ruins of Bybasos are to be found. On the southeastern side of the gulf is Keçibükü Bay, inside of which there is an island. Keçibükü is the best anchorage. On the island are the ruins of a fort. A bit inland from this bay is the village of Orhaniye and the ruins of Bybasos are located on a hill above the village. The ruins of city walls, some from medieval, some from Hellenistic times can be seen here and there within the forest on this steep and rocky hill. At a place called Pazarcik on Eren mountain south of the village of Hisarönü was the ancient city of Kastabos.
