The Aleksandros dominated the Hellenistic period and later the Roman and Byzantine periods. As a result of the settlement of the Seljuks in Anatolia in the 11th century, the Turkization movement on the lands began and with the victory following the Battle of Malazgirt in 1071, the Byzantine superiority in Anatolia lost power in favour of the Turks.
