The ancient city of Parion is located in the village of Kemer in the township of Biga in Canakkale Province. The Ancient City of Parion was major coastal city with two harbors in the Roman period. The City had intensive relations with Thrace and Anatolia throughout history. This was the main customs station through which all Istanbul-bound goods from Greece and the Aegean had to pass. Archaeological excavations at the site started in 2006. Among the historical artifacts inventoried at the site are a statue of Artemis (Diana), a gold earring with an Eros figure, and an ipotane (a centaur sculpture) as well as a number of tools.
