The city is best known for the Temple of Artemis (completed around 550 BC), one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

The city was destroyed by successive invasions in the seventh century AD by the Persians and Arabs. It was reconstructed by order of Alexander III of Macedon after his occupation in 334 BC and flourished under his successors, especially the Atala from 241 BC to 133 AD.
