Asphodelus aestivus L. with the common name Ciris is a plant from Xanthorrhoeaceae family. The plant is popular folk medicines used for treatment of hemorrhoids, rheumatism, menstrual, diuretic, ringworm, milk enhancer, eczema, acne and boilsin [1-2]. Asphodelus aestivus L. was extracted with methanol (40 C) in a ultrasonic bath (Heidolph, America) for 1 hours. Filtered extract was evaporated and dissolved with methanol for antioxidant activity. The extract was analyzed by high-performance liquid chromatography with diode array detector (HPLC-DAD) to identify and quantify their phenolic compounds. Antioxidant potential of the methanol extract was characterized with total phenolic content (TPC), total flavonoid content (TFC), 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH), and ABTS [2,20 -azino-bis(3- ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid)]. Gallic acid, chlorogenic acid, 2,5-dihydroxybenzoic acid, caffeic acid, vanilic acid, rutin, p-coumaric acid, ferulic acid, quercetin, kaempferol and isorhamnetin were detected in the extract. As a result, Asphodelus aestivus L., a rich source of phenolic compounds,
