From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Istlada was a town of ancient Lycia; the name is known only from inscriptions and is uncertain because the end of the inscription has been lost.[1]

Its site is located near Hayıtlı, Asiatic Turkey,[2][3] where remains, including Lycian tombs of the 4th century BCE, can be found.[4] The site is part of the tentative UNESCO World Heritage Site called 'Ancient Cities of Lycian Civilisation'.[5]
