„Library of Celsus, Ephesus, Turkey“

Picture ID: 3a90c7e

Ephesus, Turkey: the Library of Celsus, built 114 AD/CE, was named in honor of a Roman governor of Asia Minor (Anatolia). The nearby goddess sanctuary helped Ephesus become a prosperous port and cultural center by 600 BCE. At various times, Ephesus was controlled by Lydia (King Croesus), Persians, Hellenists (Ancient Greeks from Athens), Alexander the Great (334 BCE), and eventually it became capital (population 250,000) of the Roman Province of Asia Minor.
