Perge. Antalya. Turkey. View of egg and dart moulding and relief carving motifs that adorns one of the wings of the nymphaeum fountain at the northern end of the main colonnaded street. The fountain was built in the 2nd century AD, and was filled by spring water from the acropolis hill above. The water then flowed through the city via channels.

It prospered during the Hellenistic period and from 133 BC was under the control of the Roman Empire.
