Telmessos (or incorrectly Telmissis) was a flourishing city in Lycia, modern Turkey, on the Gulf of Fethiye. It was famed for its school of diviners, consulted among others by the Lydian king Croesus, prior to declaring war against Cyrus, and by Alexander the Great, when he came to the town after the siege of Halicarnassus. From John Harrison Allan's 'A Pictorial Tour in the Mediterranean'.
