      The 'Ephesus' of the Black Sea to be unveiled
      Turkish Daily News, July 24, 2007

      The remains of an ancient city on the Black Sea coast will be unearthed
      for the first time next month. Archaeologists are beginning excavations
      and underwater dives with the aim of unveiling the architectural plan of
      Teion (or Tion), located in Zonguldak's Filyos district. Speaking to the
      Anatolia news agency, archaeologist Sümer Atasoy said the excavation
      team conducted surface research last year but that the major digging
      will start in August with a 30-member excavation team. He said they had
      outlined an aqueduct, a theater, defensive walls, a breakwater, a port
      and port walls by examining remains close to the surface. "The ancient
      city hosted many civilizations including Persians, Romans, Genoas and
      Ottomans. The work, which was carried out for the first time on the
      Black Sea coast, indicates that the ancient city was an important trade
      center in the region. Its inhabitants sold forest products and bonitos.
      We uncovered an ancient Roman theater with a 2,000-person capacity as
      well as marble and bronze statues."
