Photographer's Note

Sagalassos archaeological site is between Lake Egirdir and Isparta, about 100 km north of Antalya. "The city has been excavated since 1990 by archaeologists from the University of Leuven in Belgium." The green tray and rusty metal support poles you can see at lower right belong to archaeologists who were still working on the site when I visited. The bg fountain was finally reconnected and opened in 2010? with the fountains again operational, after nearly 1,400 years laying in ruins after a series of violent earthquakes in the 6th and 7th centuries.

The Nymphaeum was a shrine dedicated to the freshwater spring and water nymphs, that reminded me a bit of the Trevi fountain in Rome.
