About Ephesus, Ephesus Marble Street

 It is the street between Library square and theatre. It was renovated in various periods. The street was used by carriages and a higher platform for pedestrians was built on the side of the street. The sophisticated sewage system is located underneath this street. The woman, left foot and hearth figurines made by the engraving technique on the tiles located on the middle part of the street are very interesting. Between the Brothel and the far entrance of the Grand Theatre of Ephesus, Marble Street is the part of the Sacred Road which leads to the Temple of Artemis.
The part of the Sacred road running between the Library of Celsus and the Grand Theatre is called the Marble Street. The street was paved with large blocks of marble and had herring bone slopes. On the Mount Pion side it had a portico higher than the street level. The other side was turned into a Doric stoa during the reign of the Emperor Nero. Restoration of the stoa is going on at the moment.

The wall pattern on the street side of the stoa which lies about 2.5 metres higher than the street level is very beatiful. In the Byzantine period the top part of this wall was pulled down in order to take the irons and leads holding the blocks of stone, and the lower part which could not be destroyed was broken up. Along the middle of the street run the sewers large and deep enough for a small chariot to move in easily.

The sewers coming from the direction of Mount Pion run into this. On the stoa side of the street a woman, a left foot and a heart were carved into the marble in a section surrounded by an iron fence. According to some this was the first advertisement in history and was advertising the house of love and showing where it was. Indeed, the house of love was on the left further on. The woman signified that there were women there and the heart that those who wanted could also find love.
