Kadirli is the ancient settlement of Flaviopolis which preserves today a large 5th -6th c. Basilica that was built over a pagan site (either a villa or a center for the local Asclepius cult) and was later repaired and occupied by Armenians (13th c.).  It is 36 km northeast of Anavarza on the road to Vahga.
