The tasteful volume entitled "Ephesus - History and Architecture", which was published by FHW with the kind support of the J. F. Costopoulos Foundation, is the most complete presentation in Greek of ancient Ephesus. This work is the result of collaboration of numerous experts: archaeologists, historians, architects, designers and graphic designers. It is part of a series of publications dedicated to Asia Minor cities of antiquity. (In 2000 a volume was published dedicated to Priene).

In 456 pages for the first time we find analytical texts, detailed documentation accurate architectural drawings and excellent illustration for all the buildings and monuments that were unearthed by the archaeological and excavation research, which is conducted in Ephesus for more than a century by the Austrian Archaeological Institute.

In the city the presence of Artemis is dominant, since it was considered to be one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The city also possessed several complexes of baths and gymnasiums. In several of them we find special halls for lectures, since in Greek education the care of the body was combined with the cultivation of intellect. Another special characteristic of the city was the luxurious fountains and monumental buildings. Among them the Fountain of Domitian, the Nyphaeum of Trajan and the Fountain of Laecanius Bassus.

The grandeur and prosperity of Ephesus made it one of the greatest and most important cities of the Greek-Roman world, and it continued to be of importance in the Early Byzantine Period, as it is evident by the magnificent basilica of St John and the other churches.
