It mattered little to me that this was the stadium and that a fountain; that this was a gymnasium and that a market- place; it was enough to know that the broken columns, the mouldering walls, the grass- grown streets, and the wide- extended scene of desolation and ruin around me were all that remained of one of the greatest cities of Asia, one of the earliest Christian cities in the world.- "Incidents of Travel in Greece, Turkey, Russia, and Poland, Vol. I (of 2)", John Lloyd Stephens.
