Didyma 2007 4422b.jpg

This is the fifth column in the front row, counting frow the left. It has lots of decorations, which differ along the sides. So I show all of them.

A viewer informed me as follows, for which i thank him:

At the top: Green grass and leafs, surrounded of the Tritons and Pallas heads at the top, like a garland or crown. Miletos and Didyma residents were never forgot green fresh herbs, when they living around Tritonis lake (now Victoria lake in Africa). Pl. Look. “Aklanmayı Hak Eden Tarihçimiz: Herodotos. (
Left frame: Stilized Akanthos (Acanthus) leafs, symbolized again Africas pastoral view. There was an Ancient “Acanthus” settlement, near around Memphis in Egypt. This symbol, indicates of the blessing of the soil.
Right frame: Triton (symbol of the fertility of Victoria lake). He is holding an amphora in his right hand. Amphora, may have been of Victoria lakes water. He is looking at the amphora with missing, with desire as remember when he was living in there. Tritonis has been described as a man torso, until his belly, and after that like a fish tail. His daughter Pallas (Goddess of the fog, before murdered by the Zeus and Pallas Athene), sitting on his curled tail like a riding. Gripped the strong left arm of her father. There is a symbol of fog behind of her back side, like a sail cloth. She has gripping the fog symbol at her back side for showing of her face clearly.
