Built around 104 CE, the fountain of Trajan is one of the finest monuments in Ephesus. It was constructed in honor of Roman Emperor Trajan. The pool of the fountain was 20×10 meters, surrounded by columns and statues. These statues were of Dionysos, a Satyr, Aphrodite and the family of the Emperor. They are now on display in the Ephesus Museum.
