Chalcetor

Chalcetor or Chalketor (Ancient Greek: Χαλκήτωρ) was a town of ancient Caria. Strabo says that the mountain range of Grion is parallel to Latmus, and extends east from the Milesia through Caria to Euromus and the Chalcetores, that is, the people of Chalcetor.[1] In another passage, Strabo names the town Chalcetor,[2] which some writers have erroneously altered to Chalcetora.[3]

Its site is located near Karakuyu, Muğla Province, in Asiatic Turkey.[4][5]
