Ephesus was one one of the great cities of the Ionian Greeks in Asia Minor, located where the Cayster river flows into the Aegean Sea. It was founded by colonists principally from Athens. It is situated in modern day Turkey.

Ephesus is mentioned in the Bible. The Epistle to Ephesians is a letter written by Paul to the Christians at Ephesus. According to one legend, the Virgin Mary settled in Ephesus after the crucifixion. A house about 7km from Selcuk, lying just outside Ephesus, is said to have been the last home of the Virgin Mary and is a place of pilgrimage; this structure dates to the 7th century and presumably is built on the site of the house where she lived.-wikipedia.en
