Eşen River  : Eşen is the name of today a famous ancient city " Xanthos " in the south of Turkey. Xanthos (Lycian: Arñna, Greek: Ξάνθος, Latin: Xanthus, Turkish: Ksantos) was the name of a city in ancient Lycia, the site of present day Kınık, Antalya Province, Turkey, and of the river on which the city is situated.
