Ephesus, the Roman capital in the 2nd century, BC had numerous shrines and buildings constructed. The most spectacular ruin is the Library of Celsus, as mausoleum for Julius Celsus, Roman governor of the Asia Provinces and also as a reading room stocked with more than 12,00 scrolls. The columns for the two-story building are impressive.
