The Ancient Aizonai

The ancient city is situated southwest of Kütahya,in Çavdarhisar. The settlement dates back to 3000 BC.Aizanoi was settled on the two banks of River Rhyndakos that flowed through the region called ‘Phyrgia Epiktetus’(little Phyrgia)in ancient times. The name Aizanoi comes from the word eksouanous (eksis=hedgehog,ouanous=fox). It is understood that these animals used to be sacrified for the sake of the city. According to sources from ancient writings the city was conquered by the king of Bithynia, Prusias I, and put under the domination of the Kingdom of Pergamon with Rome it too joined Rome the name ‘Azainon’comes from the nymph Erato, who is one of Zeus’ daughters, and Azan, who was the son of Arkas from Arkadya.

We also come across the name ‘Ezeanition’on the coins from the Augustus period (27BC-14AC). Aizanoi became a wealthy city with its grain,wine and wool production.It had fame for a while as the main market of the empire,lived in the glorius age in the 2nd century and experienced many public works improvements.The city became a center of the patriarchate with the spread of Christianity and was discovered by European tourists in 1824. There are ruins of two agorae, the temple of Zeus, a stadium, a theatre, bath and gymnasium situated on both sides of the river.

Built on a dais on an area 130.5x112m.It is located 200m away from  the western bank of the river and it is surrounded by colonnaded galleries.It was built to a dipteral plan with 4 Corinthian columns and 120 Ionian Columns of 8×15.In the temple under the main cella (inner shrine of a Greek or Roman temple),there are stairs that go down to underground cella.This underground cella was dedicated to the goddess of Phrygia,Meter Steunene.The temple is one of the best examples of the Ionian style in Anatolia.The acroters are especially interesting.On the west pediment,the middle acroter is decorated with the bust of goddess Kybele placed in the middle of acanthi branches and leaves.On the east pediment acroter,there is a bust of Zeus.The temple was built between the years 117-138 and has a courtyard and agora with columns in Doric style.On its front gallery walls,there are epitaphs praising Apuleius who served the Emperors Hadrian and Aizanoi.

Theatre:200m northeast of the Zeus Temple the two-storey theatre is found next to the Stadium.It has a capacity of 13.000 and a stage with a diameter of 56m.From the epitaphs on its walls,we learn that Apuleius,whose name is also to be found on the Zeus Temple and on the 4th Roman Bridge,played an important role in the construction of the theatre.

There is a marble wall that seperates the stadium and the theatre.On both sides of there are reliefs depicting hunting scenes.

On the east bank of the river,there is a round structure with 16 columns,a tomb and a necropolis that belonged to the City Elders.

Stock Exchange Building:This building was used as a grain market during the first half of the century. On its walls, there are price lists of all the goods sold in markets throughout the empire;inscriptions which show the prices set by Emperor diocletian in 301 as a measure againist inflation.Amongst the interesting things to be gleaned from the price lists is that: the price of a strong slave is equal to two donkeys,a horse is equal to two slaves and that is equivalent to 30.000 dinar. This building is considered important.as it gives certain information about the architectural development and social life of the city. And it is widely known as the world’s first commodity exchange.

Colonnaded Street: This road was attached to the northeast part of the stock exchange and along the road were shops and galleries.It passes the Temple of Zeus and extends to the Holy Arena of Kybele.

Ancient Bridges: There were five bridges on the River Rhyndakos. One was made of wood and the others were stone-vaulted. Only two of them have survived to the present day.

Valley of Phyrgia: The region formed by the Kütahya-Afyonkarahisar-Eskişehir triangle used to be defined as the mountains setting for “Phrygia Epictecus”(little Phrygia). But today it is known as ‘the Valley of Phyrgia’. The region starts at the village of New Bosna, which is away to the city center, and extends to the village of Ovacık,which is away from Kütahya,along the eastern part of the province.The Northern part includes the caves of ‘Sabuncupınar, Söğüt, İnli, Sökmen, Fındık and İncik’and Ovacık  Village and İnlice District are in the southern part.

The Valley of Phrygia are covered with the tufa rock of Mount Türkmen,an extinct volcano to the east of Kütahya.The valley was settled by the Phyrgians during the years 900-600 B.C.As the tufa rock of volcanoes is easily worked the Phyrgians used it to create many things by carving an inlaying.Many historical structures which were dedicated to the goddess Kybele have survived to the present day.Amongst these are:open air temples,altars,rock tombs and buildings erected for defence and shelter. Later the Romans then the Byzantines settled in the area.Of the churces and natural chapels found in this region one can stil distinguish the crosses from natural dye,meandering patterns,writing and frescos.There are also natural castles, “Deliktaş Castle” and “Penteser Castle” which were created by Phyrgians and Byzantines by carving the rock.

Although Phyrgians are indo-european in origin they soon became Anatolians.However they were influenced by both Ionian and late Hittite culture,and they were able to create an authentic Anatolian culture.Phyrgian Works of wood and weaving were in great demand in Ionian markets and their craftsmen were much copied by the Ionians.Among these works are bronze plates with handles and bronze cauldrons;stringy-hooked pins made of gold, silver and bronze renowned at the time for its advanced technique;belts,hairclips from precious metals,richly –adorned textiles and furniture decorated with geometrical patterns.Their weaving of rugs in a style known as ‘Tapates’influenced the carpet and rug design of subsequent Anatolian civilizations.
