Explore some of the most notable ruins of an ancient town in Asia Minor at Side Museum. A complex of Roman baths, with pools and mosaics dating from the 5th and 6th centuries CE, houses the museum's collection. The exhibits include sun dials, portraits and busts, sarcophagi and steles, weapon embossing work, columns, pedestals, and capitals from Roman, Hellenistic, and Byzantine periods. Look for the Roman copies of Greek statues of Heracles, Hermes, Athena, Apollo, the Three Graces, and Nike. The late Hittite period is represented by several basalt craters. Professor Arif Müfid Mansel discovered most of the artifacts in excavations during 1947-1967.

  • Occupies a small territory, on the site of the restored Roman baths. Entrance 10 lire. Coin, spearheads, jugs, statues (body separately head separately, because history, Christians have won then these places otsekali head statues, as believed these gods, worshipping Pagans). Sargofagi, big and small, a couple of skeletons. Cognitive space.
