THE MEMMIUS MONUMENT (Ephesus)

The monument was erected to the memory of soldier Memmius, the son of Caius and grandson of Dictator Sulla of Roma, in the 1st century A.D. It was dedicated to Memmius due to one of his military victories.

The Memmius Monument is located to the north of Curettes Road across the Domitian Square. It is a four sided victory arch. There are three stairs between the columns which hold the arch and the ground. In fact some of the inscriptions were lost or used for repair of the other buildings around, it is still well documented that the monument was built to the memory of Memmius.
