(Water Palace / Su Sarayı/ Wasserschloss)English: The monumental fountain building donated by the Proconsul Gaius Laecanius Bassus in ca. A.D. 80 is situated at the intersection of two main streets. The rectangular 105 m2 large basin was framed by sumptuous two- to three-storey aediculated façades on three sides, whereas the fourth side had a draw basin in front. The interplay of rich and colourful architecture, sculptural decoration with flowing water, and the dynamic element of water all resulted in making the fountain an attractive highlight.
