Arsemia ancient city hierothesion and capital of commagene
The ancient city built within the summer capital founded by Antiochus I, the magnificent king of the Commagene kingdom, by his ancestor arsames. In antiochus built on his father's holy mausoleum and in turkey, which has the largest Greek inscriptions . the holy river for I Mithrades priest and the ancient city which is an amazing natural landscape. It is built on the sacred river, the Kahta(Nymph) river, has an incredible view of nature. It is built on a high hill against enemy attack.
Antiochus defines the city of arsemeia as a twin city. He established a hierothesion (Ancient Greek ἱεροθέσιον 'holy seat'), in Commagene, is a monument or royal mausoleum, for his father I.Mithirades.
It is one of the three hierothesions found in the kingdom of kommagene. (Mount Nemrut hierothesion, karakus tumulus hierothesion).

There are steles in this ancient city with 3 handshake scenes of Antiochus.
The antiochus has a handshake stele with apollon (mithras-hermes), I mithirades and herakles (artagnes).
This ancient city, which has the longest Greek inscription in Anatolia, is located in a well 158 meters deep.
In the early days, the well used for the fresh water source was thought to be an escape route found in all palaces and castles.The small holes and niches on the base and walls of the well show that this place is actually a sacred graveyard.
now I leave you with the words of the great king Antiochus I in arsemia.

‘the great king antiochus, son of the king mithiridas and queen laodike, the friend of helen and the romans, and arsemia on the shore of nympios also left an unshakable law to his paternal ancestors (pers, armenian) and the immortal messenger, behind which he entrusted untouchable monuments for his own cult.’

This ancient site is a hidden gem right in the heart of the nature. There are some reliefs, inscriptions (biggest inscription in Greek in the Anatolia) and underground tunnels. We thought it was even better than the Nemrut Mountain.

The place to be
maj 2019 • Dla rodziny
If you're going from Nemrut to Malatya, then this is a must. Located in a beautiful and tranquil area, far from any city, the ruins are, althought a few, well preserved. There are also some tunnels in the area that you can explore, some deeper then 50 meters.The view is breathtaking!

Interesting Ruins
paź 2018 • Pary
Visited here on 9th October 2018.
Limited ruins to see.
Impressive tunnels and several impressive carved reliefs.
Worth stopping while touring the Mt Nemrut area.
Only a short drive from the Eski Kahta Yeni Kale.
Fairly steep walk to reach ruins from the carpark area.
Nice views from the top of the city.

Worth a quick stop if you are travelling to or from Mt Nemrut. Highlight is the relief carving of the King and Roman general.

There are many otels and pensions at these areas.
Parking place,wc, cafeteria is available.
Winter season between december and march is heavy with snowy. Therefore after february is available for visit

Fascinating Views and interesting ruins
paź 2017
Dont give up after you reach the first cave.. for the best you have to walk a bit further up.. Its not difficult to climb up but there is no rallying to support your climb. There are few interesting greek engraved monuments. Once you reach the top you will be able to see the town beneath and even the castle which is now closed to the public. I went in late October and the weather is extremely pleasant.

Little remains of this the 1st capital of kammagene, but what there is is terrific
cze 2016 • Pary
This was the first capital of Kommagene, and later used only as a Summer residence. The most impressive features are the relief of Mithridates depicted as larger than Heracles, the longest Greek inscription carved on stone in Anatolia, and entrance to the tunnel at the monumental tomb of Mithridates Kallinikos at Arsameia. The tunnel is 158m long and leads to an underground stream. The views are spectacular, and there is interesting flora too. The terrain is quite challenging. Visited in May

Loved it.

A very interesting scattering of ruins and statues. The Greek inscription above one of the tunnels is apparently the longest Greek inscription on stone in the world (or so Ive heard). The view from the top where once stood the palace is one of the reasons why Adıyaman is one of my favourite provinces in Turkey.
