The name "Priene" is thought to
have pre-Grecian origins, dating
from when the Cretan islands,
''Praisos and Prianson" had relations
with Priene.  Prior to becoming one
of the 12 members of the Ionian
Confederation and participating in
the "Ionian Rebellion," Priene had
been under Lydian dominion for
several centuries.
