Mount Cadmus

Topçambaba Dağı (formerly Baba Dağı or Baba Dagh) is a mountain in Aydın Province, Turkey.

Cadmus or Cadmos (Ancient Greek: Κάδμος) was the ancient Greek name; it was then in Phrygia Magna.[1] In antiquity, the sides were well wooded. A river Cadmus flowed from the mountain that flowed into the Lycus, a tributary of the Maeander.[2] The range of Cadmus formed the southern boundary of the basin of the Maeander in these parts. Pliny's remark about it[3] does not help us. Ptolemy[4] puts it in the latitude of Mycale, which is tolerably correct.
