Prusias ad Hypium Ancient City
The history of the Ancient City of Prusias ad Hypium in Düzce Konuralp District dates back to the 3rd century BC. Konuralp first appeared on the stage of history under the name Hypios. The name of the town, which was built on a hill ending in the plain near Little Melen and Tabak Streams extending from east to west, started to be called Kieros after Hypios. Bithynes, who took action against Mariandyn and Herekleia State, conquered Kieros in the east of Sangarios by the hand of their king Prusias I (283 BC - 83 BC). By placing the Bithyn Colony here, the Prussias I., which made it more prosperous than before, adorned the city with many monuments and changed its name after it was fortified. So Kieros withdrew from the stage of history at the end of the 2nd century BC, and the city was named "Prusias" in the name of the king.
