“Belonged to a wealthy Ephesian”
4 Jan 2017
This attractive structure is noted for its extra-wide and high arch supporting a triangular capital. It was erected during the time of Augustus to the memory of Sextillius Pollio, builder of the famous aqueduct which carried water to the fountain.

The arch is one of the major contributions of the Romans to the development of civilization. This towering example of how precise the construction process must be, also bespeaks the importance of the aqueducts which brought water for this fountain.
