  Lycia

A coastal region in southwestern Anatolia, with an exceedingly rugged upland interior behind it. Located between Caria to the west and Paphlagonia to the east, the region has always had a reputation for harbouring fiercely independent inhabitants. The area is noted first as a haunt of pirates for nearly all it's recorded history, and secondly for the fact that the inhabitants of it's chief city, Xanthus, committed mass suicide on two separate occasions (546 BCE and 42 BCE) rather than be conquered by opponent armies.
