- "There's barely mention of the city in the histories, and none still live who remember it. But it was a beautiful city once, and prosperous. And now it is gone. Forgotten."

Sil'dih was a city-state that existed long ago beside Ul'dah in Final Fantasy XIV. It existed somewhere in the Sagoln Desert south of Ul'dah, and may have been visible from the cliffs of Central Thanalan, but it has since vanished from sight for unknown reasons.
A remnant of that civilization, the Sil'dih Aqueducts, is hidden in the furthest tunnels of the Copperbell Mines. It is blocked by a strange wall of webbing, and was only available via temporary Aetherial Gates during the Lambs of Dalamud event related to the Seventh Umbral Era. It is now completely inaccessible, and likely will never be opened again.
The grandness and elegance of the aqueducts suggests Sil'dih rivaled, or even surpassed, Ul'dah in architectural aptitude. Their culture was similar in some respects; even their names are similar, having **l'd*h in common.
That they were forgotten suggests Ul'dah does not harbor any bitterness toward them, so a war was unlikely. It may be that the people of Ul'dah wanted to forget them and tried to erase them from history, or that they either lacked the means or motivation to keep adequate records.
