In September, information appeared that in the ancient city of Alabanda (near Çine, in the west of Turkey), during the ongoing excavations, a statue of Hadrian was discovered in fragments.
Scientists suspect that the image of the emperor was immortalized in connection with his visit to the city in 120 CE. The statue could be two and a half meters high and, according to archaeologists, it was probably destroyed by Christians in the following years.
