The history of Diokaisareia (Diocaesarea)  






Diokaisareia (also Diocaesarea) today Uzuncaburç, belonged in antiquity to the priest state Olba, whose residential and capital was about 4 km east. Diokaisereia was a holy place and cult center of the inhabitants of the priest state. After the state of Olba became Roman, the Zeus cult gained in importance and under Tiberius (14-37 A.D.) the cult place with the name Diokaisareia became an independent town with its own coins.
