Aiolis was a Greek colony located on the northwestern coast Asia Minor. By the 8th century BC, twelve cities of Aiolis formed the Aeolian League but was eventually split up by
the Ionian Confederacy and conquering Persian kings. After centuries of different ruling kingdoms, Aiolis became a Roman province in 133 BC.
