Nike, winged goddess of Victory.
Note the “swoosh” concealed in
her robes under her right hand.
Medusa, with snakes for her hair, was
a goddess so powerful that gazing upon
her directly would turn you into stone.
Add a crown and straighten her hair and
you have… Starbucks.
Celcus Library, completed in 135AD,
once held 12,000 scrolls.  And a secret
underground passageway leading to a brothel.
Built in the 1st century, tradition states
that Apostle Paul preached here to crowds
of up to 24,000.  Ephesus is the source of

the book of Ephesians.
