The Agora


The Agora – Ephesus (Selçuk) Overview
In the middle of the agora, built in the 2nd century B.C., are the foundations of a temple built for the Egyptian goddess Isis in the 1st century B.C. In the north of the Basilica, is the odeum and to the right of the odeum are the ruins of the Vedius Bath.

In the west of the odeum two small peristyle temples can be seen. These temples were dedicated to Augustus and the goddess of Rome. To the west of the temples was the holy fire which used to burn in the Pantheon where two statues of Artemis, at the Ephesus Museum today, were found. To the east of the terrace of the temple were the shops; and Domitian Road which led from the square to Curetes Street.
