History

Arrian[3] writes ...Thence he (Alexander the Great) went into Phrygia, passing by the lake called Ascania in which salt is naturally concreted. The natives use this salt, and do not need the sea at all for this article. This lake Ascania is mentioned by Herodotus (vii. 30), as being near the city of Anava. It is now called Burdur (Turkey).
