Overview

Troy AncientGreek, Troia was a city situated in what is known from Classical sources as Asia Minor, now northwest Anatolia in modern Turkey, located south of the southwest end of the Dardanelles/Hellespont and northwest of Mount Ida at Hisarlk. It is the setting of theTrojan War described in the Greek Epic Cycle and especially in the Iliad, one of the two epic poems attributed to Homer. Metrical evidence from the Iliad and the Odyssey seems to show that the name (Ilion) formerly began with a digamma: (Wilion). This was later supported by the Hittite form Wilusa.
