Once, Lake Bafa was connected to the Aegean Sea and was the remotest part of the deep Gulf of Miletus. Along this gulf lay the mighty city of Miletus (protecting the gulf entrance), Priene’s harbour (Nulochos) and smaller harbour towns like Myus, Phyrrh, Heracleia of Latmos and Ioniapolis.
Ionaiapolis was established before Heracleia and its harbour was once used by Miletos and also Latmos, the small town bearing the mountain’s name. Beginning in Late Antiquity (around the 5th century), alluvial deposits of the Meander River gradually silted up the entrance of the Latmos Gulf so that by the end of the Middle Ages (around the 15th century) its connection with the sea was completely cut off.
