Virtual reconstruction of the Curetes street in Ephesus, Ancient Greece

By 2 months ago

This street took its name from the priests who were called as Curetes later. There were fountains, monuments, statues and shops on the sides of the street. It was an important processional way to the Artemision.

The rendering of the street will illustrate the Ephesus part of the book series ‘La aventura de la arqueología’ from Tecam, RBA, National Geographic.

Ephesus was a city in ancient Greece on the coast of Ionia, 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) southwest of present-day Selçuk in İzmir Province, Turkey. It was built in the 10th century BC on the site of the former Arzawan capital by Attic and Ionian Greek colonists. During the Classical Greek era, it was one of twelve cities that were members of the Ionian League. The city came under the control of the Roman Republic in 129 BC
