Beşik Tepe (Kolonai)

Number: 25

The settlement lies on the Aegean coast south of Alexandria Troas and west of the village Akçakeçili in the district of Ezine. Frank Calvert identified this place in 1859 with ancient Kolonai. The settlement consists of two parts, the large south hill and a smaller north hill. It appears to consist of an upper and a lower town. J. M. Cook says that J. Mellaart identified dark burnished ware of Troy I-II date and a bit of Late Bronze Age Gray Ware with wavy line Ornament.
