Kısık (Cave) River Ancient Quarry

 An ancient marble quarry is on the lower course of the Kısık River. This area is 3 km South of the ancient city of Sardis. The semi-finished parts of columns show that this quarry area was also used as an atelier and the finds of ceramic remains from antiquity provide further evidence of this. The in situtraces of the stone cutting methods employed by the quarry demonstrate that these quarries were worked to supply the stone for constructions in Sardis city.
