The reconstructed facade of the Library of Celsus stands at the bottom of the Curetes Way. The louvered structure at the left encloses the spectacular Terrace Houses; the walkway in front of it is mosaic.

One of two very fine representations of the city's patron goddess in the museum; both had been carefully buried, presumably by adherents of the old religion seeking to protect them from marauding Christians. This exquisitely carved example is a little smaller than life size.
