An epigraph among the ruins of Roman walls and mosaics was discovered by archaeologists during a military construction in Bardakci Cove. It was discovered that the epigraph, in which the “Reputable Writers and Poets Born In Halicarnassus, Artemisia Is Proud of” were narrated was a poem belonging to Hellenistic period. The remains of the Salmakis Fountain can still be seen in Gümbet Military Beach today, but no trace of the Salmakis Temple has been found. The Temple of Salmakis is thought to be on the cape where the old Turkish arsenal is located. A Fresh water spring in the harbor near Cape Arsenal is thought to have fed the Fountain of Salmakis, which is not certain as no excavation has been carried out.
