The doric hexapolis or Dorian Hexapolis was a federation of six cities of Dorian foundation, and included:



The members of this hexapolis were accustomed to celebrate a festival, with games, on the Triopian promontorymarker near Cnidus, in honour of the Triopian Apollo; the prizes in those games were brazen tripods, which the victors had to dedicate in the temple of Apollo; and Halicarnassus was struck out of the league, because one of her citizens carried the tripod to his own house before dedicating it in the temple of Apollo. The hexapolis thus became the Doric Pentapolis. (Herod. i. 144.)
