Cape Gelidonya formerly Kilidonia or Killidonia is a cape or headland on the Teke Peninsula in the chain of Taurus Mountains, located on the southern coast of Anatolia between the Gulf of Antalya and the Bay of Finike. During the classical Greek and Hellenistic eras, it was called Chelidonia (meaning swallows), and a group of five small islands, as Chelidonia nessoi In Roman times, it was known as Promontorium Sacrum and the group of islands as Chelidoniae Insulae.

The cape is the site of a late Bronze Age shipwreck (c. 1200 BC). In view of the cargo's nature and composition the findings are, it is from a Greek-Mycenean provenance. The remains of the ship sat at a depth of about 27 m,[4] on irregular rocky bottom. It was located in 1954, and the excavation began in 1960 by Peter Throckmorton, George F. Bass, and Frédéric Dumas. Among the findings were Mycenaean pottery, scrape copper, copper and tin ingots, and merchant weights.
