About the Lecture: Aphrodisias is one of the most important archaeological sites of the Greek and Roman periods in Turkey. The city was famous in antiquity for its cult of Aphrodite and for its marble sculptors. It enjoyed a long, prosperous existence from the second-century BCE through the sixth-century CE, and its buildings, marble sculpture, and public inscriptions are remarkably well preserved.
