Antandros is another ancient site near Assos, Behramkale, located at the foot of Mount Ida, only 40 minutes of driving distance away. It is a home of well preserved Roman villas with well preserved mosaics and frescoes. It is tiny jewel to visit during a stay in Assos. The current excavations are run byProf. Gürcan Polat.

The importance of Antandros in history: With the fall of Troy, Aeneas is designated to find and build a new home and continue the royal name of his family. Aaneas reaches Antandros where he builds ships and sails for his fated destination Italy. The myth says that his son is the founder of Alba Longa named to be the parent city of Rome and his descenders Romulus, Romus to be the founder of the Roman Empire. So the escape of Aeneas as a Trojan from the Greek invasion creates a bound for Romans to their roots. Most myths of Greeks and Romans are linked, Aeneas by his Trojan origin breaks that bound and give a Roman History a different color.
