Temple of Domitian, Ephesus: 7 reviews and 13 photos


Located to the south end of Domitian Street, this is the first known structure in Ephesus to be dedicated to an emperor. It was built on a high and wide terrace measuring 50m x 100m in size, on vaulted foundations. The northern side of the terrace seems to be two-storeys high, reached by stairs. The stairs are still visible today.

The temple had eight columns on the short side and thirteen columns on the long side, with four additional columns in front of the cella. On the northern side there was a u-shaped altar, which is now displayed in the Izmir Archaeological Museum.
