Historical Notes:

In antiquity, the name Maeonia seemed to have been used to refer to Lydia, and was perhaps an older name for the kingdom that occupied most of western Anatolia (in modern day Turkey). Durinig the Roman period, Maeonia was also the name of a town at the foot of Mount Tmolus that was peopled by the original Maeonians.
