Amrit

A dependency of Arwad. It served as a "mainland suburb" for the Aradians on their island stronghold. The most prosperous, perhaps because closest to the tiny, but powerful metropolis, was AMRIT-MARATHOS. In the 3rd century BC, under the Seleucids, the colony made an attempt to free itself from the domination of the Aradians, but the people of Aradus had no hesitation in destroying the town which had served them for more than a thousand years. In it there are two strange monuments and are sorts of towers or landmarks. One of them pyramid-shaped, the other phallic. At the foot of these monuments and round about, tombs and burial vaults have been carved out of the rock. The biggest of them probably belonged to the kings of Aradus (Arwad) and to the rich families of Amrit.
