ANTIPHELLOS (Kas, formerly Andifli) Lycia, Turkey:

The earliest occurrence of the name is in a bilingual epitaph of the 4th c. B.C. found at Ka? and half a dozen other Lycian inscriptions, all on tombs, prove the antiquity of the site. The rise of Antiphellos to importance began in the Hellenistic age, and by the Roman period it was by far the most important city of the region. The coinage includes Hellenistic issues of federal and nonfederal types, and of Gordian III. The city was the seat of a bishopric in Byzantine times.
