Reconstruction of Hadrian’s nymphaeum in Perge, in the south of Turkey. The ancient city existed even before the Roman rule, but it was the Romans who made the city one of the most beautiful in Asia Minor. To this day, in Perge there are remains of a pillared street, a bathhouse, a theater and a stadium.
Among the ruins there is also the aforementioned nymphaeum, which decorated the end of the water pipe that brought water from the surrounding hill. The nymphaeum was beautifully decorated with numerous monuments, including the river god Kaistros – Cestrus.
IMPERIUM ROMANUM is in process of translation over 3300 Polish articles about history of ancient Rome. If you have the opportunity to financially support the further translations – even with smaller amount – I will be very grateful.
