“There are several layers to be worked,” said Ersoy. “We will work on the Ottoman era first, followed by the Eastern Roman, Roman and then the earlier ages,” he added.
Ersoy said that it was during the excavation work when they found clues of a temple to Nemesis built in the ancient city.
“We think the temple is situated on the western side,” he said. “It might be under the Hurriyet Anatolian High School building. We hope to unearth it in coming years,” he added.
In Greek mythology, Nemesis was the spirit of divine retribution against those who succumb to hubris, vengeful fate, personified as a remorseless goddess.
