The elderly king of Tartessos regarded the Phokaians with so much favour as, to beg them to quit Ionia and settle in whatever part of his country they liked. Herodotos

The Phokaians escaping the Persian invasion laid the heaviest curses on the man who should draw back and forsake the armament; and having dropped a heavy mass of iron into the sea, swore never to return to Phokaia till that mass reappeared upon the surface. Nevertheless, as they were preparing to depart for Cyrnus, more than half of their number were seized with such sadness and so great a longing to see once more their city and their ancient homes, that they broke the oath by which they had bound themselves and sailed back to Phokaia. Herodotos

It was possible to find any kind of job, there was bread there (...) Nobody knew what poverty meant. A Greek citizen of Foça

Phokaia, having really fascinating natural formations, was no doubt, the most alluring and beautiful city of antiquity. Ord. Prof. Dr. Ekrem Akurgal

Foça for them was the blissful country of happy times in the past. Dr. Herkül Millas

Foça is a passion.  Ahmet Vasfi Pekin
