Photographs from the city of Ephesus

Site of harbour - (1 of 39)

A general view of where the harbour of Ephesus originally was sited. During the first century, the sea to the left of the photograph extended all the way across the flat ground in the centre of the photograph to the streets of Ephesus, which were to the right of the photograph.

From Roman times, there was a continual struggle to prevent the harbour from becoming silted up. Eventually the battle was lost, and the city of Ephesus declined as it was cut off from the sea.
