Nyssa by River Meander

The author of the article considers the foundation of a Greek Archaeological School in Turkey more than necessary, since its objective can be the research of the extant monuments of the ancient Greek civilization in this country. In addition, he refers briefly to the historical and archaeological interest that Nyssa presents being the only one among the numerous ancient Greek towns of Asia Minor that was excavated during the years 1921-1922 by the Greek archaeologist K. Kourouniotis. The agora, the gymnasium, the theatre and the aqueduct of Nyssa give a complete picture of the major components of the ancient Greek polis. If to these edifices we add the thermae, the amphitheatre and the library that decorated the city during the Roman period, then we can conceive the significance and vigor Nyssa once had.
