Without comment I present a series of views over the excavation area. Since the city is (almost, there used to be a bridge) connected to another island two harbours were created. One of the two harbours ships of war, the other merchant shipping. The city had the usual buildings, a theatre et cetera. The Aphrodite temple was famous for its Praxitiles statue.

A friend and I went to Knidos back around 1970. Our husbands were based at Smyrna . She and I went to Bodrum and rented a boat, captain and crew and went to Knidos. Prof. Love from NY Univ. was doing a dig. We got there on her birthday. We saw a little of her excuvation. This picture is a big change in what had been done at that time. It was very exciting to us. After 40 years we are planning to go back next year. Thank you for your pictures.
