Ephesus: Hadrian Temple


Hadrian Temple
Located on Curetes Street, the Hadrian Temple was built to honor Emperor Hadrian (117 – 138 CE), who visited Ephesus in 128 CE. At the center of the arch that is in the front of the temple is the head of Tyche, the Greek goddess of fortune. Above the door that is at the back of the temple is Medusa standing with acanthus leaves. On both the sides of this door, the friezes portray the story of the foundation of Ephesus.
