The unique mosaic of Medusa in the Odeon amphitheater of Kibyra, an ancient Hellenistic city in southwest Turkey’s Burdur Province

Theater, Kibyra. Kibyra (sometimes also spelled as Cibyra) is an ancient city and an archaeological site in south-west Turkey. Kibyra is also the place where, according to Strabo, the Lydian language was still being spoken among a multicultural population around his time (1st century BCE), thus making Kibyra the last locality where the culture, by then extinct in Lydia proper according to extant accounts, is attested.
