E for Ephesus

Ephesus is a city in South Western Turkey. It is a very ancient town settled by Greeks and then later by Romans.

Today Ephesus (which was recently declared a World Heritage Monument by UNESCO) is a site of spectacular ruins from the Roman times. The exact location of the city of Ephesus changed over the centuries as the landscape changed (silting of harbour, coastline etc).

Here are a few images from Ephesus
