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.

No, this is news to me.

Conversations between gods and mortals were much more common at that time ...

HAS ANYONE EVER TOLD YOU WHAT APHRODITE SUPPOSEDLY SAID WHEN SHE SAW THE STATUE THAT PRAXITILES MADE OF HER? "ALMOST YOU WOULD THINK HE SAW ME NAKED."
