Byzantine Forum

It stands out as one of the most beautiful monuments of the late Roman and early Byzantine periods. Thanks to the structures of this vast complex, it bears a special resemblance to the Round Market in Constantinople.

Decorated with columns and large marble slabs, its architectural appearance proves the function of an open market square. It is clear that the circular area which extends with a length of 40 m within a colonnade in the center constituted a space used more for formal activities. This market was not designed simply for trading and therefore it is also known as the Byzantine Forum.
