    2500 yo Aphrodite Temple in Turkey



    "IZMIR, TURKEY—According to a Hurriyet Daily News report, a team of researchers led by Elif Koparal of Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University identified the sites of hundreds of Neolithic settlements and a 2,500-year-old temple dedicated to the goddess Aphrodite during a survey of the Urla-Çeşme peninsula, which is located on Turkey’s western coastline. Koparal said it is unusual to discover a temple during such a survey of the surface of the ground. “We found a statue piece of a woman on the floor, and then a terracotta female head figure,” Koparal said. The artifacts had been damaged through prolonged exposure to wind and rain. “There is also an inscription around the temple,” she said. The researchers were able to pinpoint the temple’s walls with remote sensing equipment, she added. "

    The Hellenization of Asia Minor was far more extensive than some people realize.

    where do you see extensiveness? Helens were an Anatolian people who occupied part of European soil. So they were at Home in Smirna(Izmir). There is a language connection between Greeks and Armenians which puts both peoples in Anatolia.

    Yup! Greek and Armenian language split from the same common language. It means they were living in the same area some times ago. The best candidate area is Anatolia! Why being nervous about it?

    Clearly you've never read any history in your life. Hellenization was a cultural process that spread out with Alexander and his armies.

    You were put on silent for a long time. I'm perfectly content to have it happen again.

    We don't need any t-rolls here.
