  The Statue of Cybele/Artemis, The Ephesus Museum
by Paul2001

I highly recommend that before you set out for site of Ephesus that you visit this museum in nearby Selcuk first. The Ephesus Museum features an amazing collection of artefacts gathered from the site. It also provides you with a historical background on the history of Ephesus.
Pictured here is the statue of Cybele or Artemis. The question is, are those rows of breasts hanging of her chest or rows of severed testicles? Anyway they are both objects of fertility and it is one of the highlights of the museum. Other important artefacts are the bronze statue of Eros With The Dolphin and the statues of a headless Aphrodite and bodies Zues.
The Ephesus Museum is not very large and can be visited in about a hours time. It is open daily from 8:30am to noon and 12:30pm to 4:30pm. Admission is about $4.00.

Address: Atatürk Mah. U?ur Mumcu sevgi yolu, Selcuk
Directions: It is located on the edge of the park near the intersection of Ataturk Cad.
