About Antiochia

Antiochia (Antakya today) is the seat of Hatay Province in southern Turkey, approximately 14 mi les inland from the Mediterranean coast. The city of Antioch was founded in 300 BC, after the death of Alexander, by the Seleucid King Antiochus Soter, and went on to play an important part in the history as one of the largest cities in the Roman Empire and Byzantium, a key location of the early years of Christianity, the Antiochian Orthodox Church, the rise of Islam and The Crusades. Here one of the oldest soap manufacturers in Mesopotamia has withstood the test of time: Antiochia Soap. Archaeological findings provide evidence of its existence as far back as early antiquity; at the time when Syrian Aleppo manufactured a very similar soap from an olive and laurel oil basis.
