Wall at Ephesus

This wall on the west side of Ephesus was part of the harbor baths and gymnasium. There was an aqueduct that brought water here and they had rooms underneath the complex where fires warmed the water. You can see the pipes in the town that carried water to the houses which were also heated by warm water.
The Museum in Selcuk shows a early photo from the 1800's that shows this piece of wall but the blocks were not as precarious as they are now.
