Cascoly Travel
Turkey: Perge & Aspendos

Ancient Perge, one of the chief cities of Pamphylia is recognized by Hellenic towers, dating back to the 3rd century BCE. In front of the gate are the ruins of the the 2nd century CE agora and stoa. The floor of the stoa and shops was made of colored mosaics.. My favorite section is the Nymphaeum, a triumphal fountain whose stream flowed down a water channel along the collonaded street. It dates from the reign of Emperor Hadrian (130-150 CE). The mathematician Apollonius from Perge lived and worked here. Apollonius was a pupil of Archimedes and wrote a series of eight books on geometry.
