Sincik: Sincik is the most recent district (ilçe) of Adiyaman, becoming one in 1991. Until then it was a Bucak under Kahta. Sincik is about 42 miles from Adiyaman with the population of the entire district, based on the 1990 census, of 19,524. Of this 2,503 live in the central town, Sincik.

Farming and animal husbandry are the only economic activities of the region, although recently honey making has gained some importance. Due to its very rough terrain, farming in the area is very primitive. Farmers can produce only enough for their sustenance. The district’s remoteness has prevented a thorough investigation of its many archeological remains. Among the most significant is the Roman fortress of Derik.
