Prytaneion Ephesus

Prytaneon is the place where the holly fire was. The names of the monks and nuns who took a duty here in this place are written on the 2 columns. It was dedicated to the Goddess of Fire Hestia and was the holly center of the city.

Two big original Artemis monuments were found in the excavations in Prytaneon and visible in Ephesus Museum.
