The Great Sebastian Way

The Great Sebastion Way

Aphrodisias, Turkey

Discussed on pp. 89–90, 207

The great Sebastion way partly reconstructed but originally was 90 metres long, consisting of two porticos with numerous panels to the divine Caesars. Each panel was 160×140 cm and was set on the 2nd and 3rd levels. The Sebastion led up to the imperial cult temple.
