Sagalassos fountain (Turkey, ca. 160-180 AD). Located roughly 110 km north of Antalya, the ruins of the city extend  2.5 km from west to east and 1.5 km from north to south. The excavations at Sagalassos are now among the largest archaeological projects in the Mediterranean. Sagalassos was a prosperous city for over 1000 years, from early Hellenistic times until it was struck by a devastating earthquake in the 7th century AD when the city was abandoned.
