Historical background


IONIE - EPHESUS

(390-330 BC)

Located at the mouth of the Cayster coast of Asia Minor, Ephesus was known for its dedicated to Artemis (Artemision) temple which has been dated through the votive deposit of construction, the second half of the seventh century. The city was the Persian yoke. After the naval battle of Mycale in 479 BC, it approached Athens and joined the Delian League attico-from 477 BC It broke with Athens after the disaster of Syracuse in 415 BC In 407 AC. Lysander set up his headquarters at Ephesus and the Athenians won the Aegos Potamos victory in 404 AC. Spartan domination ceased after the victory of Conon at Cnidus in 394 BC The Peace Antalcidas in 387 BC consecrated the return of the city in the Persian orbit. This domination lasted until 338 BC, when the city rose up under the leadership of Philip II of Macedon. After Granicus in 334 BC, the city rallied to Alexander after chasing the Persian garrison.
