THE IONIC STOA (Miletus)


The stoa was built during the Roman Emperor Cladius. It was standing alongside the Commemoration Road to the east, when walking to thec entre of the city.

Originally, there was a pavillion with 35 columns in the Ionic style. There were 6 steps between the ground and the platform all along the way. Also, there existed 19 shops to the east of the platform.

During the Seljuk period a bath was built where 18 columns of the Stoa was standing before and 3 of the shops were shifted to the north of the stoa. The site is still under restoration.
