Ephesus, Street of the Curetes

Ephesus (modern Selçuk): ancient Greek town in western Turkey, one of the largest and best excavated cities of the ancient world.

Named after the curetes, the priests of the city's protective deity Artemis, the Street of the Curetes was one of the main streets in ancient Ephesus. Along this colonnaded street, people could see statues, mosaics, and reliefs: the Ephesians wanted to impress their visitors.
