Ephesus Curetes Street
Curetes street is the main street of Ephesus City and it cuts diagonally across the grid system.
Curetes Street was both a main city street and an important processional route in the cult of Artemis which had hops, workshops, inns well decorated temples, fountains and roman baths.
Main street of Ephesus was named Curetes Street to honour priests of Artemis who were called Curetes. The Curetes were the demigods famed in mythology by the noise they made. Later an order of priests was created by the same name in Ephesus to honour Artemis Cult.
Today while people are walking in Curetes street, different styled pillars on both side of street make them amazed. All these pillars were collapsed by an earthquake in 4. Ad and were re-erected. Floors of Curetes street were covered with local white marble.
This Marble Street was once walked by Kleopatra, Mark Antony, Caracalla, St. Paul, St. John and numerous important people that we do not know today.
