Processional Way [text in English]
Annual festivals named ?Artemisia' or ?Ephesia' in antiquity were undertaken in honour of Artemis, the city goddess of Ephesos. The festivities, which lasted for several days, were framed by sportive and musical competitions, although the focus was the procession accompanied by sacrifices. The procession, in which a festively adorned and bedecked cult figure of Artemis was carried, also served as a visit of the goddess to the city, since her temple (the Artemision) lay outside the city. The procession proceeded from the Artemision to the Magnesian Gate, and passed the ?State Agora' via the Curetes Street towards the Great Theatre. From there it followed the Theatre Street, leaving the city via the Colonnaded Street between the Stadium and Vedius Gymnasium, before returning to the Artemision.
