Talaura (Greek: ?) or Taulara, was a mountain fortress in Pontus to which Mithridates VI of Pontus withdrew with his most precious treasures, which were afterwards found there by Lucullus. (Dion Cass. xxxv. 14; Appian, Mithr. 115.) As the place is not mentioned by other writers, some suppose it to have been the same as Gaziura, the modern Turhal which is perched upon a lofty isolated rock. (Hamilton, Researches, vol. i. p. 360.) The editors of Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World equate Talaura with Bayramtepe (formerly called Horoztepe).[1] The city also minted coins in antiquity.[2]
