The Nymphaeum.

The Nymphaeum of Miletus consists one of the most impressive fountain structures in Asia Minor. It was situated at the west part of the city between the North Agora (at the south), and the Gymnasium of Eudemus and the Capito Thermae (at the north). It was designed in the mode of a theatre’s scaenae frons. It deploys in three storeys and the façade’s wall is decorated with columns, niches and aediculae, in which statues were displayed. A characteristic feature of this specific type is the existence of two water basins, a basin for the collection of water in an upper level which supplied a second draw basin in a lower level.

For this and more information, check a fine site.
