Antandrus: port in the southern Troad, modern Altınoluk.
Now that Athens and Sparta were fighting each other and had no opportunity to protect the Asian Greeks, Antandrus became Persian again. However, the new rulers were expelled twicenote[Thucydides, 8.108 again; Xenophon, Hellenica 4.8.35.] before their rule became permanant.The city lost importance in the fourth century, but retained its independence after Alexander the Great had overthrown the Persian Empire, as is shown by its coinage. The city made money from selling wood, which was cut in the Ida Mountains in the hinterland. It had a temple of Artemis.
According to the Roman legend told by the poet Virgil, Antandrus was the place where Aeneas boarded his ships and set out for Italy after the fall of Troy.
