A Short History of Lycia

Lycia, also known as Lycia et Pamphylia, was made up of a combination of the Lycian and Pamphylan ethnic groups in Southern Anatolia. The Lycians grew to dominate the Province due to the capital and center of economic activity reaching a focus in Xanthos. The Lycian League were made up of the principal cities of their area of influence, three votes from the cities of Xanthos, Patara, Myra, Piinara, Tlos and Olympos. The Pamphylians were a mixture of Greeks and Cilicians. They were often confused with the Pisidian people on the interior of Anatolian Peninsula. The Pampylians were recorded by the Hittites and by the Greek Historians. Pampylia was conquered by the Lycians who were subsequently conquered by Rome. Rather than divide themselves into two provinces they chose unity, or rather the Lycians chose unity for them, so they could continue to be utilized. In many ways the Pamphylians were slaves of the Lycians but strangely this rarely seems to come to a violent conclusion among any of the Pamphylians calling for reform, rarely revolution. However this was not a sustainable system.
