Antigonos Monophtalmos, one of Alexander the Great's generals, established Alexandria Troas in 310 BC. After Alexander's passing in 323 BC, Lysmimakhos gave it the name "Alexandria Troas," which translates to "Alexander's city." It is located in the province of Canakkale, which was formerly known as Dardanellia. The "Herodes Atticus Gymnasium" in Alexandria Troas, one of Anatolia's largest gymnasiums, was discovered during archeological digs, and it was also discovered that the city was one of Anatolia's largest in antiquity. Temples, tiny baths, a stadium, a fountain, a stone-paved street, a theater, a trench, and a port's ruins can all still be seen today.
