From an historical point of view,the city of Ephesus owed its prominence to its strategic position and to the wealth of its territory.As the capital of the province of Asia Minor in the Roman era,it was also the leading political and intellectual center.In addition,Ephesus was a great seaport,the largest in the Aegean,a place where the trade roads of Asia Minor and whole Eastern Mediterranean met.
