At the start of the tour, the Library was what I was most excited to see! My memory is fading a little, but I think I remember the guide saying that it was one of the biggest libraries in the ancient world, after Alexandria and maybe Rome.
First, a picture from a distance:
Now at the street right in front:
Turing right, towards the Commercial Agora:
Outside the library are four statues representing four virtues. Here they are from left to right:
|Sophia - wisdom (I can recognize that one)|
|Arete - Ephesus' website says it means valor, but Professor Finnigan says it means excellence|
|Ennoia - intelligence|
|Episteme - knowledge|
|Inside the arch|
Next, the Commercial Agora. This is where all the shops would have been, and it's down the hill so it's closer to the harbor.
