Roman Wall in Izmir

A cinema fire in Izmir has revealed remains of a Roman-era wall. Dixit Akın Ersoy, who led the excavations:

“(The excavation) of the agora is the best heritage to leave behind for future generations. With the support of Izmir Metropolitan Municipality, the environment of the Izmir agora, one of the biggest and oldest agoras in the world, has been opened up and can now be seen by people from the Çankaya neighborhood. We have not started work on the wreckage of the cinema building yet but we believe this ancient site is two times bigger than the local agora site.”
