MERSIN, ancient MERSINA, is a city and major port on the Mediterranean coast. The ruins of the Roman harbour town of Soli-Pompeiopolis lie immediately to the west. Excavations in a mound called Yümük Tepesi, 2 miles (3 km) north of the modern harbour, indicate settlements in the remote Neolithic (New Stone Age) Period: a village was fortified there as early as c. 3600 BC and again during the Old Hittite (c. 1750-1460 BC) and New Hittite (c. 1460-1200 BC) periods, but was abandoned after the foundation of Pompeiopolis. Mersin's artificial harbour, one of the largest ports in Turkey, is an outlet for the agricultural products and minerals of the Cukurova (Cilician) Plain and southeastern Anatolia.
