Sagalassos Nymphaeum

The Belgian team that is excavating Sagalassos has dedicated itself to painstaking reconstructions of the extant collapsed monuments. This monumental fountain on the forum has been re-erected in the past couple of years. Plans are to link it to the original spring water source (which still flows) using models of original terracotta pipes so that water will flow in the fountain again. This has already been done successfully at a smaller fountain at this site.
