Xanthos means yellow in ancient Greek. The foundation of the city goes back to the end of the 8th century BC. It was the ancient capital of Lycia. The most imposing monument at Xanthos is the theater, which was founded during the Hellenistic period and renovated by the Romans. Next to the theater there is the Lycian tomb standing over a pedestal. The stele at the northeast corner of the agora is an important monument with an inscription in the Lycian language. Lycian alphabeth was basically Greek.

The recent history of Letoon has parallels with Xanthos. It was discovered by European travellers in the nineteenth century. O. Benndorf visited the site in 1840.
