Side

Side (Greek: Σίδη Side, Turkish: Side) was an ancient Greek city in Anatolia, in the region of Pamphylia, in what is now Antalya province, on the southern Mediterranean coast of Turkey. It is now a resort town and one of the best-known classical sites in Turkey, near Manavgat and the village of Selimiye, 75 km from Antalya) in the province of Antalya.

It is located on the eastern part of the Pamphylian coast, which lies about 20 km east of the mouth of the Eurymedon River. Today, as in antiquity, the ancient city is situated on a small north-south peninsula about 1 km long and 400 m across.

Famous quotes containing the word side:

    She left the web, she left the loom,
    She made three paces through the room,
    She saw the water-lily bloom,
    She saw the helmet and the plume,
    She looked down to Camelot.
    Out flew the web and floated wide;
    The mirror cracked from side to side;
    “The curse is come upon me,” cried
    The Lady of Shalott.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    All the heavy days are over;
    Leave the body’s coloured pride
    Underneath the grass and clover,
    With the feet laid side by side.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    The art of storytelling is reaching its end because the epic side of truth, wisdom, is dying out.
    Walter Benjamin (1892–1940)
