Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 61 F3 *Hydai/*Kydai

The Geometric-Orientalizing period necropolis is mostly buried under the modern village of Damlıboğaz in Turkey. Geometric and Orientalizing period remains have also been located in the riverbed of Sarıçay immediately to the east of the village. There is textual and numismatic evidence of the settlement in Hydai/Kydai between 5th-2nd century BCE as well. A walled acropolis is located to the west, in the hills of Kale Tepesi. Second millennium BCE (Middle and Late Bronze Age) remains, particularly pottery, have also been recovered from different parts of the settlement.

The Barrington Atlas Directory listed "Damlarboğaz" as the modern location. This may represent an error, or a variant spelling, of Damlıboğaz.
