Aphrodisias - City of Aphrodite (1984) TV

"Aphrodisias, is the one city in all of Asia I have selected to be my own" - this majestic testimonial was written by the Roman Emperor Augustus, who had had it carved on a theatre wall in the city in about 27BC. The site director, Professor Kenan Erim, shows this inscription, along with other city treasures to John Julius Norwich, as they tour these dazzling excavations.
