Hi Jaymers "Trajan" :-)),

yes you’re right, Ephesos is an amazing and also a mystic place. See all my pics of Ephesos here, I hope you like them too.

The Fountain of Trajan, erected between 102 and 114 AD (NOT built it in 450bc), had two floors decorated with twelve statues of Venus, Saturn, Dionysos, and members of the royal family. The main statue showed the Emperor Trajan with his foot resting on the world, which was in the shape of a globe, proving that the ancient romans knew the true shape of the world even back in the 2nd century AD.

I would appreciate if you could participate on Panoramio and post your photos (summer 2007) soon.

Best wishes, Andreas
