Ok fine! Laaaama gila tinggal blog ni. Kunun janji mau wrap up cerita Turkiye as soon as possible but I got tangled with some businesses I ended up abandoning most of the things I used to love doing. Gitu ayat ndak menahan! Sebabkan lama aku paused cerita Ephesus ni, makanya makin banyaklah cerita di hari kejadian yang sudah evaporate from my tiny memory box.

Once standing upon the Curates Street...haruslah aku fokus tumpuan to search for the Brothel. Ngeks kan perangai. Curiosity killed the cat katanya! Ntah apa yang di-investigate sangat.
Kunun Brothel tu dapat dijejak based on the founding of Priapus statue with an oversize of phallus in the house. The Brother is just a peristyle house on the corner of the Curates Street. Didn't get to see the statue thought because it was presented in the museum.

|# Please meet Scholastica (statue without head); a rich Christian lady whom built the Scholatisca Baths.|

|# Standing at the highest point of Scholastica Baths.|
|# The Octagon; a monument to Ptolemy whom is the youngest sister of Cleopatra VII.|
|# Four columns at the facade supported the curved arch. And that relief at the center of the arch is Tyche; the goddess of victory.|
|# Inside the temple, architectural ornaments depicting the story of the foundation of Ephesus can be seen.|
|# What was left of the terrace house. The mosaic tiles on the paved sidewalk in front of the lower level of the terrace house remain intact; albeit slightly stained. A prove the owners must have the city elites.|
|# The Curates Street|
|# Statue of Trajan (now what was left is just ruins of the statue) stood in the central niche of the facade looking over the pool.|
|# Called so because of the Hercules reliefs on it.|
|# As I arrived at the end of Curates Street, I turned back.|
