Friday Snapshot: The Library at Ephesus

 

This majestic ancient library was completed in 120 AD. Do the math kids, that’s pretty old. This gorgeous façade was originally built to house more than 10,000 scrolls and the tomb of one  Roman Senator Tiberius Julius Celsus Polemaeanus, who was buried in a sarcophagus beneath the library. Look at the detail. Pretty snazzy!
