Its site has been identified as Küçükahuriyala, near Sütiğen, about 25 kilometres north of Kaş in Antalya Province, Turkey. The ruins are plentiful but in a poor state. They include part of the well-built city wall, a theatre, a stadium, a paved agora with stoa and some bases bearing inscriptions. The necropolis to the west includes sarcophagi and constructed tombs.
Apart from its mention by Ptolemy and by Hierocles in the Synecdemus (ca. 535 AD), where it is misspelled "Misae" (Μίσαι), and in the Notitiae Episcopatuum, nothing is known of the town's history. The only known coin that it issued is of a type that does not show membership of the Lycian League.
