It’s ancient population was 5,000 and had a well planned grid system design for its streets. In early days it had a port but by the Roman period the nearby Maiandros River silted up the land into a swamp.
Miletus was an important commercial and governmental center from 700 BC until 700 AD. Although today this ancient city is surrounded by farm land, when it was at it’s peak the Aegean Sea rose to it’s city walls. You can still see where the harbor once brought goods to and fro. The most memorable part of visiting Miletus is to sit in one of the 15,000 seats of it’s ancient theatre, and then wander the passageways that connect the sections of the theatre.
Didyma was not an ancient city, but rather a sacred place of pagan worship.
