Upper Agora information
This large square once used for legislation and local political talk was flanked by grand columns and filled with polished marble. In the middle was a small Temple of Isis – testament to the cultural and trade connections between Ephesus and Alexandria in Egypt. The agora's columns would later be reused for a Christian basilica, which was a typically Byzantine three-nave structure with a wooden roof. From here, there are several archways in the distance, once food-storage houses.
