 Lycia
Lycia came to occupy most of the Teke peninsula at the south-west corner of Anatolia (general map [54K]; labelled regional photo [79K]; labelled photo [46K]), between the Indos river bordering Caria in the west, the plains of Pamphylia starting at Attaleia in the east, and the mountains of Pisidia to the north.
Lycia held the distinction of being the last area in Asia Minor to be formally incorporated as a Roman province.
Lycia was formally free for over two centuries after breaking away from Rhodian control with Rome's blessing in 167 B.C. However, in A.D. 43, during the reign of Claudius, it was combined with part of Pisidia to the north-east and Pamphylia to the east into the joint province of 'Lycia et Pamphylia'.

 Alexander the Great - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Alexander left Caria in the hands of Ada, who was ruler of Caria before being deposed by her brother Pixodarus.
From Halicarnassus, Alexander proceeded into mountainous Lycia and the Pamphylian plain, asserting control over all coastal cities and denying them to his enemy.
From Pamphylia onward, the coast held no major ports and so Alexander moved inland.
