Apamea, museum

Situated in a well-preserved Ottoman khan that once offered accomodation to pilgrims travelling to Mecca, this small museum shows some finds from the nearby city, including several nice mosaics and some sculpture. On the courtyard, there is a collection of tombstones of Roman legionaries, who may have been killed in action during the civil war between Macrinus and Heliogabalus (218). Like the ruins of Apamea itself, the museum of Apamea may have been looted during the Syrian Civil War.

This museum was visited in 2008.
