First established as a port in the 10th century BC, Ephesos was re-established at the beginning of the Hellenistic period and prospered into the Ottoman period. The Artemision at Ephesos was regarded as one of the wonders of the ancient world. Excavations at the site were undertaken by British archaeologist J. T. Wood and from 1895 by Austrian scholars. The expedition is currently directed by Friedrich Krinzinger.

Ephesus (Greek: Έφεσος, Turkish: Efes), was one of the great cities of the Ionian Greeks in Asia Minor, located in Lydia where the Cayster River (Küçük Menderes) flows into the Aegean Sea (in modern day Turkey). It was founded by colonists principally from Athens. The ruins of Ephesus are favourite domestic and international tourism attractions, due to easy accessibility via İzmir ADB airport and via the port of Kuşadası. Ephesus hosted one of the seven churches of Asia, addressed in the Book of Revelation.
