Selge was an important city in Pisidia, on the southern slope of Mount Taurus, at the part where the river Eurymedon River forces its way through the mountains towards the south. The town was believed to be a Greek colony. Selge rose to the rank of the most powerful and populous city of Pisidia, and at one time was able to send an

army of 20,000 men into the field. The remains of the city consist mainly of parts of the encircling wall and of the acropolis. A few traces have survived of the gymnasium, the stoa, the stadium and the basilica. There are also the outlines of two temples, but the best conserved monument is the theater, restored in the 3rd century AD. Selge was the seat of a bishop; it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.
