An ancient settlement whose precise location is unknown. Modern scholars place it variously at Bakir, Maltepe, or İlyaslar in modern Turkey.

39.0823041333, 27.7403034667
    • Less than certain: Maltepe (Turkish, AD 1513 - AD 2000)
    • Less than certain: Nakrason (Ancient Greek, 330 BC - AD 300)


Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 56 F3 *Nakrason?

The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Maltepe?, Bakır?, Ilyaslar?
Dinç (1997:270) states that Ramsay identified this place with the prehistoric mound called Maltepe. Cohen (1995) summarizes ancient evidence and prior modern bibliography, but advances no preference among the three location proposals that are also reflected in BAtlas and in this record.
