Holmi or Holmoi (Ancient Greek: Ὅλμοι), or Holmia,[1] also possibly called Hermia, was a town of Cilicia Tracheia, a little to the south-west of Seleucia ad Calycadnum; during the period after Alexander the Great its inhabitants were transferred to form the population of the neighbouring Seleuceia.[2][3] The Periplus of Pseudo-Scylax (c. 340-330 BCE) describes it as deserted.

Its site is located near Taşucu in Asiatic Turkey.[4][5]

Arslan Eyce Private Amphora Museum

Arslan Eyce Private Amphora Museum, also known as Taşucu Amphora Museum, (Turkish: Arslan Eyce Özel Amphora Müzesi) is a maritime archaeology museum dedicated to amphora in Taşucu, southern Turkey.

Taşucu, known as Holmi in the antiquity, at 36°19′03″N 33°52′40″E is a seaside town in Silifke İlçe (district) of Mersin Province. Formerly, it was an important port. The museum is located in an 19th-century building on the İsmet İnönü Boulevard, which was originally a storage building. The building now is a property of the museum foundation. Arslan Eyce, a citizen of Silifke, spent 40 years in collecting ancient amphorae mostly from shipwrecks. In 1997, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism (Turkey) took over the collection. After maintenance, the museum was officially opened in 2003.There are 400 amphorae in the museum. The exhibited amphorae span a long time from 3200 BC to 1800 AD.

Dendryphantes holmi

Eszter Juhász

Eszter Juhász (born February 23, 1988 in Hungary) is a Finnish female curler.She started curling in 2006 at the age of 18.

Eszter Juhász was born in Hungary. Her family moved to Finland when Juhász was at the age of 2.

Eusirus holmi

Eusirus holmi is a species of amphipod in the family Eusiridae.

György Károly

György Károly (Károly György, 31 August 1953 – 26 October 2018) was a Hungarian poet and writer.

Holmi (Phrygia)

Holmi or Holmoi (Ancient Greek: Ὅλμοι) was a town of ancient Phrygia. It is mention by Strabo as lying on the main road from Carura to Lycaonia near that road's entry into the mountainous region.Its site is unlocated.

Italy runestones

The Italy runestones are three or four Varangian runestones from 11th-century Sweden that tell of warriors who died in Langbarðaland ("Land of the Lombards"), the Old Norse name for Italy. On these rune stones it is southern Italy that is referred to (Langobardia), but the Rundata project renders it rather anachronistically as Lombardy (see the translations of the individual stones, below).

The rune stones are engraved in Old Norse with the Younger Futhark, and two of them are found in Uppland and one or two in Södermanland.

The memorials are probably raised in memory of members of the Varangian Guard, the elite guard of the Byzantine Emperor, and they probably died while fighting in southern Italy against the local Lombard principalities or the invading Normans. Many of their brothers-in-arms are remembered on the 28 Greece runestones most of which are found in the same part of Sweden.

The young men who applied for a position in the Varangian guard were not uncouth roughnecks, as in the traditional stereotype, but instead, it appears that they were usually fit and well-raised young warriors who were skilled in weapons. They were the kind of warriors who were welcome as the elite troops of the Byzantine Emperor, and whom the rulers of Kievan Rus' requested from Scandinavia when they were under threat.

Kakamega holmi

Kakamega holmi is a species of East African jumping spiders. It is the sole species in the genus Kakamega. It was first described by Angelika Dawidowicz & Wanda Wesołowska in 2016, and has only been found in Kenya.The genus name appears to be invalid, as it is a junior homonym of the bird genus Kakamega, published in 1978.


Langelurillus is a spider genus of the Salticidae family (jumping spiders). All the described species occur only in Africa.

The Pylojacquesidae are a small family of hermit crabs, comprising only two species in two genera. The family was erected in 2001, after two specimens at Museum für Naturkunde at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin were recognised as being quite distinct from other described hermit crabs. The family members differ from other hermit crabs in that their mandibles are chitinous and toothed.


Taşucu (Greek: Holmi) is a small town of Silifke, Mersin Province, Turkey. It obtained the status of Municipality after the local elections in Turkey, 1955. By the new regulations on the constitution, it legally got the status of Mahalle again in 2014. The population was 8,847 as of 2012.

In 2000 a military pier, Agalar, was built 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) south-west of the town. During the Syrian Civil War the pier was used to ship weapons to Syrian rebel groups as part of the U.S. Timber Sycamore program.

Transport in Mersin Province

Mersin Province is a Mediterraneran province of Turkey. The south eastern plain of the province is a part of Çukurova (or historically Cilicia Pedias ). But most of the province is mountainous with a number of small alluvial plains at the coastal band. Below are the transport facilities of the province.

Uppland Runic Inscription 328

The Uppland Runic Inscription 328 stands on a hill in a paddock at the farm Stora Lundby, which is about four kilometers west of Lindholmen, Stockholm County, Sweden, in the historic province of Uppland. The runestone is one of several runestones that have permitted scholars to trace family relations among some powerful Viking clans in Sweden during the 11th century.

Wanda Wesołowska

Wanda Wesołowska (born 1950) is a Polish zoologist known for her work with arachnids. Her research focuses on the taxonomy, biology and zoogeography of jumping spiders.
