Efes - Arcadian (Harbour) Street
Efes - Arcadian (Harbour) Street
This street is situated between the Harbour Baths and the great theatre. Entering from the port, traders and sailors would first arrive in this street. So it was designed gorgeous with marbel slabs and colonnades. It was constructed in the Hellenistic Period, but then was restored during the reign of the Emperor Arcadius (395-408 AD.), from whom it takes its present name. The street was 530 meters long and 11 meters wide, and on both sides of the street there were shops and galleries, and gates in the form of monumental arches. There were four higher columns with the statues of four apostels on the top. It was one of the three lighted street at that time along with Rome and Antioch. 50 streetlights lit up its colonnades and water, sewerage channels ran beneath the marble flagstones.
