A Brief History of Ephesus

Not without mentioning how Ephesus was founded.

1000 B.C. Androkios, son of King of Athens, Kodros, sails to the Aegean with his friends with the desire to establish a new city. After passing the lush green shores and islands one after the other, they come to a beautiful bay. There are islets, hills, and charming valleys here. Behind them is a river flowing by winding and watering vast lands… Androkios and his friends want to establish a new city here, but according to belief, a place needs to be approved by the gods and priests in order to become a city. Androkios sends a friend to the sacred temple in Delphi. The prophets prophesy about this newly established city, “The fish will leap, the pig will run away and you will build a city with a bright future there.”

One day, while Androkios and his friends fry the fish they caught in the bay, the oil in the pan explodes, the fish splashes and the fire splashes with the fish ignites the surrounding bushes. The pig hiding in the bushes starts to run away. Androkios goes after the pig and kills it, and the legend comes true. Thus, the foundations of Ephesus, one of the most important cities of the east and west for centuries, are laid. At the same time, Ephesus is the most valuable place on Christianity with Virgin Mary Church. Virgin Mary Church stays on the backside of Ephesus.
