Koressos Gate, one of the three known gates of the ancient city of Ephesus, will be unearthed

Excavation work has begun to unearth the Koressos Gate, one of the three known gates of the ancient city of Ephesus, one of the largest port cities of the ancient world.

The Koressos Gate will be excavated by a team led by Professor Martin Steskal of the Austrian Archaeological Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.

Ephesus

Steskal noted that they carried out excavations at the Koressos Gate, Temple of Serapis and Domitian Square in Ephesus this summer, and said that they also continued the restoration of the wall paintings in the Slope Houses.

Steskal stated that they started working at the Koressos Gate, where no one had ever worked before, and said, “This is a very important excavation area. There were three important gates in Ephesus. Koressos Gate is the third biggest gate. We started working here two weeks ago and we will continue to work here all summer long.”

Steskal stated that the conservation and restoration work of the Library of Celsus will begin in October and said, “The Library of Celsus, Türkiye’s first ancient structure to be brought to its feet, will be taken into care after 50 years.”

Steskal said that working with Turkish scientists is an advantage, “We are working very well with the coordinator. He is a very good archaeologist, I have known him for many years. It is a new concept and we will see how it will develop. It will be to our advantage to work together.”
