Aspendos or Aspendus in Pamphylia

Click here for my page with very many Turkish cities OR Other antique cities

The Enc. Brit. has: "Greek Aspendos , modern Belkis ancient city of Pamphylia, now in southwestern Turkey. It is noted for its Roman ruins. A wide range of coinage from the 5th century BC onward attests to the city's wealth. Aspendus was occupied by Alexander the Great in 333 BC and later passed from Pergamene to Roman rule in 133 BC. According to Cicero, it was plundered of many of its artistic treasures by the provincial governor Verres. The hilltop ruins of the city include a basilica, an agora, and some rock-cut tombs of Phrygian design. A huge theatre, one of the finest in the world, is carved out of the northeast flank of the hill. It was designed by the Roman architect Zeno in honour of the emperor Marcus Aurelius (reigned AD 161–180)."

I give the theatre a sub-gallery, it being so large and my taking so many pictures. At the end I show pictures of a bridge that a pedestrian coming from the main road will see first. It was just being reconstructed, looked brand new, but originated in Seljuk times.

In December 2012 I paid another visit, so some new pictures are added.
