Euromos was the most important city in the ancient times after Mylasa. The namve of the city was "Cyramos" or "Hyramos" in the 5th century B.C. The Greek form of Euromos meaning "strong" is likely to be adapted as the policy of Hellenization by Mausolos. Although the city ruins is demaged the Temple of Zues in Euromos is among the half dozen best preserved monuments in Asia. It was built in the Corinthian order and dates from the 2nd C AD. It has 6 columns on the architrave and 9 columns on the sides. The large but quite demolished theater is in a recess in the hillside slightly above the plain. The Agora on the flat ground is surrounded by a Stoa with some of the columns still standing.
