Temple of Isis
Objects discovered in this small temple in the Upper Agora suggested that it was dedicated to the Egyptian goddess Isis.
Site of a necropolis dating to the 6th century BC which was later covered by the upper (or state) agora.
Two of six original Doric columns mark the entrance to the ruined Prytaneum, one of the most important civic structures in Ephesus....
Upper Agora information
This large square measuring 58m by 170m, and used for legislation and local political talk, was flanked by grand columns and filled with polished marble. More or less 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 on the agora's northeastern edge, 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.
