Historical Notes:

The earliest reference to the Carian township of Idyma comes from the mid-5th century BC, when it was mentioned on the tax list of cities under the Delian League of Athens.  The settlement was located a little inland from what is now the Gulf of Gökova (in present day Turkey), and as evidenced on their coinage, the cult of Pan, the sylvan god of shepherds, was of particular importance to the Idymians.
