Ephesus :: Fountain of Trajan

Fountain of Trajan

Next to the Hadrian temple, also on the Street of the Curettes stands this fountain, built in honour of the Emperor T rajan (98-117 AD.). The pool was 20 m. long and 10 m. wide. It has been partially restored. Originally the pool was flanked by columns and statuary. The statues are now on display in the Ephesus Museum. The facade overlooking the pool contained a colossal statue of T rajan in the centre, the feet of which remain in situ. Parts of the torso were also found during excavation. This is one of he finest monuments in Ephesus.
