Chrysaoris (Ancient Greek: Χρυσαορίς) was a town of ancient Caria, perhaps afterwards called Idrias (Ἰδριάς). According to Apollonius, in his Carica, it was the first city of those founded by the Lycians. According to Marcus Mettius Epaphroditus, all Caria was called Chrysaoris. Herodotus mentions a district in Caria, named Idrias, in which the Marsyas of Caria (Çine Çay) had its source. Antiochus built his city Stratonicea near the site of this old town Chrysaoris or Idrias.
