I have arrived in Turkey to work for the next six weeks. Before heading to the area we are digging, there have been a few days to spend here in the area around Antalya, including some important sites in Pamphylia–Side and Perge. I was keen on seeing these places because of the number of nymphaea there. Quite impressive–and so grand! Below, I am pictured with the river god adorning the Hadrianic nymphaeum at Perge.
