Abstract and Keywords

This article explores the complex archaeological and historical evidence describing the intersection between Greeks and Anatolians in the western and central reaches of the peninsula. It begins with an overview of the geographical context within which these Greek settlements existed and a discussion of the region's chronology. There follows a brief examination of the key sites of Old Smyrna, Phokaia, Miletos, and Knidos. Finally, three key themes in the archaeology of this region are examined: the mythical and archaeological evidence for the coming of the Greeks to Anatolia, the nature of the relationship between Greeks and non-Greeks in the region, and the local identities of the settlements here.

Keywords: Anatolians, Greek settlements, chronology, Old Smyrna, Phokaia, Miletos, Knidos, archaeology
