An advert (graffiti) on one of the marble paving stones for a brothel at the city of Ephesus, the ancient Roman capital of Asia minor. in modern day Turkey.
The advert includes a heart, a cross, a womans head, a foot and cash; and it has been translated as 'turn left at the cross roads where you can buy a womans love'. Ironically, the brothel is positioned opposite the ancient library.
Ephesus was home to the Temple of Artemis, one of the ancient wonders of the world, who was viewed as the goddess of fertility and crops. The temple was known throughout the ancient world for its prostitutes and hedonistic celebrations. There was even, sadly a sect known as the Nicolatian Christians who engaged in such hedonism and are mentioned in the Bible (Revelations 2) and Isaiah commented on how these people had corrupted the teachings. (Isaiah 13:12)
