Old article[edit]

Here is the old article for reference (nowiki to eliminate links):

'''Afium-Kara-hissar ''' (afium, [[opium]]), the popular name of Kara-hissar Sahib, a city of Asiatic [[Turkey]], in the vilayet of Brusa, nearly 200 m. E. of Izmir, and 50 m. S.S.E. of Kutaiah. Pop. 18,000 (Moslems, 13,000; Christians, 5000). Called [[Nicopolis]] (Greek: ''Victory City'') by [[Leo III]] after his victory over [[Arab]] besiegers in [[740]], its name was changed by the [[Seljuk Turks]] to Kara-hissar. It stands partly on level ground, partly on a declivity, and above it rises a precipitous trachytic rock (400 ft.) on the summit of which are the ruins of an ancient castle. From its situation on the route of the caravans between [[Izmir|Smyrna]] and western [[Asia]] on the one hand, and [[Armenia]], Georgia, &c., on the other, the city became a place of extensive trade, and its bazaars are well stocked with the merchandise of both [[Europe]] and the East. Opium in large quantities is produced in its vicinity and forms the staple article of its commerce; and there are, besides, manufactures of black felts, carpets, arms and saddlery. Afium contains several [[mosques]] (one of them a very handsome building), and is the seat of an [[Armenian Orthodox Church|Armenian]] [[bishop]]. The town is connected by railway with [[Izmir]], [[Konya]], [[Ankara|Angora]] and [[Istanbul]]. See [[V]]. Cuinet, ''Turquie d'Asie'' ([[Paris]], [[1894]]), vol. iv.

Is this the same as Kara-Hissar Sharki?[edit]

Does anyone know if this town is the same as Kara-Hissar Sharki? If so, they should be merged. Tocharianne 02:43, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
