Reconstruction of the Trajan Nymphaeum (Nymphaeum Traiani) in Ephesus (western Turkey). The building was commissioned by the local aristocrat Tiberius Claudius Aristion around 114 CE, in honor of the goddess Artemis and Emperor Trajan.
The nymph was an ornate fountain that ended the water pipe and graced the city center beautifully. In the central niche of the object was a statue of the emperor.
