Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Ephesians, i:1.)--Ephesus was once the greatest
city in all Asia Minor, and the principal emporium of trade in the East. It was known as one of the eyes of Asia, Smyrna being
the other. The inhabitants of Ephesus were mainly Greeks[.] Hence the city occupied no mean place in literature and art. Apelles
was a native of Ephesus. Three great buildings of interest were the temple of Diana; the theater, which was the scene of the
riot of Demetrius, and the stadium, or circus, the arena of the sea fights. In the above view we have a representation of
the aqueduct and the acropolis that stood above the city. None of the ancient cities have more completely been obliterated.
The theater referred to in Acts, 19-29, was capable of holding twenty-five or thirty thousand people, and was the largest
ever built by the Greeks."
