Location, river and translating from French Wikipedia[edit]

The intro reads: "Its site is believed to be occupied by the modern Sandarlik at the mouth of the Koca Çay."

The image caption in the infobox reads: "Ancient Myrina was located on the Beriki Tepe hill, on the left bank of the Pytikos River."

I modified the image caption slightly to make the sentence grammatically correct, but didn't touch both sentences. The first sentence is supported by a source, the Barrington Atlas, the second is not. But on Google Maps all I see is that it's north of Aliağa. I can't find anything about the name of the hill, the name of the river or the town Sandarlik.

If I look at Google Maps however, I get the impression that Myrina was located on the right bank of the river, what ever it's name may be. I'd appreciate it if anyone could help with figuring this out, I can't easily get my hands on the Barrington Atlas myself.

Also, the article on Myrina on the French Wikipedia is much more complete. I intend to translate the info there. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AlexanderVanLoon (talkcontribs) 08:32, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
