Edremit is a modern settlement and associated administrative region in the Van Province in the southeast of Turkey. In the vicinity, several inscriptions on rock and stone of the Urartian king Minua (9th / 8th century BCE) have been found which report the construction of the 'Canal of Minua'. In Greek and Roman times, Ptolemy gives the name "Artemita" for a settlement that modern scholars believe was located at Edremit.
