Pollio Fountain
In ancient times, Ephesus had one of the best aqueducts in the world. Built in 97 CE, the Pollio Fountain was dedicated to C. Sextilius Pollio, the builder of one of the aqueducts. It was a two-story structure with an imposing arch that was visible from many parts of the city. The fountain provided free water to the citizens and visitors.
