Photographer's Note

The remainder of Greek writings on the walls of a library in the ancient city of Ephesus in western Turkey. Ephesus is acclaimed to be the best preserved of the ancient cities. Alexander the Great is said to have ridden through this city and wanted that the library be named after him, but he was told that it would be unfair to replace the name of one god with that of another.

I believe that is how the story goes. In any case it is a great place to visit, and even if you can't afford the 40-50 Euro for a tour guide, just being in the surroundings is enough to let you slip into a slow gear.
