Konya is a city in the Central Anatolia Region of Turkey. It is the seventh most populous city in Turkey. As of 2011, the Konya Metropolitan Municipality had a population close to 1.1 million. Konya is an economically and industrially developed city. It is the capital of Konya Province. Konya was historically the capital of the Seljuq Sultanate of Rum and the Karamanids.
Konya, was known in classical antiquity and during the medieval period as Ἰκόνιον (Ikónion) in Greek (with regular Medieval Greek apheresis Kónio(n)) and as Iconium in Latin. This name is commonly explained as a derivation from εἰκών (icon), as an ancient Greek legend ascribed its name to the “eikon” (image), or the “gorgon’s (Medusa’s) head“, with which Perseus vanquished the native population before founding the city. In some historic English texts, the city’s name appears as Konia or Koniah.
