Monuments: Ephesos: Miscellaneous Sarcophagi

Ephesos was an important centre of sarcophagus production in Asia Minor. Various canonical types were produced by carvers in the city, especially a distinctive garlanded variety. These were carved in the local white marble in the main. Wealthy residents of the city also imported sarcophagi, however, from producers close to the Prokonnesian quarries and from Athens. More
