On the the street of the Curettes in Ephesus Turkey is the temple of Hadrian located where this is the front entrance of. This temple was constructed by P.Quintilius between 118-138 A.D., and dedicated to the emperor Hadrian. Prosperous, sophisticated, highly cultured, Ephesus was the leading city of the wealthy and populous Roman province of Asia and one of the most precious jewels in the Roman empire's crown. Today, the city of Ephesus stands as it did in ancient times. No modern city was ever built over it; once the emperor stopped the funds used to dredge the harbor, it gradually filled with silt and became unusable and so it lost its commercial value and its standing as a vital urban center.
