The name OiuAe'i'T-iAAa occurs in an inscription of Antiochia
Pisidiae above, No. 138.
Kirili Kassaba is a small market town, as the name indicates. It
is very malarious during the summer and early fall. Leaving Kirili
Kassaba we traverse a rolling country, passing Tchukurkend and
Yenidje, and reaching Munafer in 1 h. 45 m. Munafer is a wretched
village situated on the edge of a swamp, and like all the villages near
the lake it is very unhealthy. On the contrary, the numerous and
prosperous villages on the high ground along the northeastern edge
of the plain of Kirili Kassaba are not malarious.
June 30. Munafer, via Eflatun Punar, to Yontislar, 7 h. 15 m.
We visit Eflatun Punar in order to secure photographs of the
important monument. One of these photographs has been published
by Dr. William Hayes Ward in the American Journal of Archaeology,
Vol. II. (1886) pp. 47-51 and Plate I. Professor Kiepert thinks
that the name of the place is Eflatun, not Elflatun. Eflatun is the
Arabo-Turkish pronunciation of Platon, a name which cannot have
the Arabic article el.
Leaving Eflatun Punar we pass Selki, immediately beyond which
place we ascend to a table-land. As we advance, this plateau gradually
becomes rolling and barren. The few inscriptions of Yontislar are
given in the Papers of the American School, Vol. III. Nos. 313-315.
