    * Halys *

    رود هالیس

    Halys River which is known today as Kizilirmak (Red River), is the longest river in Turkey. It is 1150 km flowing into Black Sea. Halys was the boundary of the Hittite Empire. The eclipse of the sun which took place near the Halys River on May, 30, 585 stopped Median Hoakhtar's army who was battling Lydian king Alyattes and a peace accord was made, thus: Halys River became the border between Lydia and Media until Croesus of Lydia crossed it to attack Cyrus the Great in 547 BC. He was defeated and Persia expanded to the Aegean Sea. (Wikipedia) - Halys
