In ancient times, Ephesus was a bustling trading city and a center of worship of Cybele — the Anatolian goddess of fertility. In time, she was adopted into the Graeco-Roman religion as Artemis, the goddess of the hunt and the wilderness. In Ephesus, she was worshipped in the enormous temple that was one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world.
