Some scientist put forward some claims that Mallos ancient settlement has located vicinity of Kızıltahta Village which is approximately 25 kilometers north of Karataş by depending some epigraphic evidences gotten from surveys in the area. On the otherhand, there is a possibility that this two settlements in the same place (present Magarsus) and there are some stronge evidences about this subject. Some information given by ancient term writers and geographers strengthens this possibility. It can be showed as an example that Magarsus is called as Mallos in some ancient sources.
