The Troad area where Antandros lies has hosted many myths during the ancient times. Although many of these myths took place in these lands, they are regarded as ancient Greek myths and are widely known as so.
The birth and raising of Paris, the judgement of Paris, Paris and Helene, Ankhises and Aphrodite, Ida in the Trojan war, Aeneid’s journey, Zeus carrying off Ganymede, Apollo and punishment of Poseidon, marriage of Zeus and Hera on Ida Mountain, raising of Hermophroditos on Ida Mountain can be cited among these important myths.
Just as it does today, Ida Mountain (Kazdağı) also impressed the people of the ancient times and was always presented as the place of the gods. Just like Troy and Ida, Antandros being situated at the skirts of Ida Mountain has taken its fair share of these myths.
