Life today is not so very different to that of the various peoples who have inhabited Ephesus,
especially those as depicted by the New Testament. From education to
heating systems, from prostitution to religion, there are many parallels
with our own lives; we still suffer from graffiti and inflation.
Wandering around the ruins of Ephesus, clambering over bits of marble and testing the acoustics in the theatre, we could do well to spare a thought for the people who built it.
We owe respect and gratitude not only to the builders for creating such beauty for us to enjoy, but also to the common people who shaped a way of life for us to inherit.
We also owe acknowledgements to all the archaeologists and historians that have been working on the ruins for the last couple of centuries. Without them we would not be able to understand their significance.
We hope you find the information in this e-book useful, either if you are planning to or already visited Ephesus. If you have not been there, we hope this e-book can, somehow, transport you to the ancient city, although there is still nothing that can completely replace the pleasure of wondering through its long uninhabited streets.
By the way... The bee was the symbol of Ephesus,
and it is found on many coins minted in the ancient city
