The first foundation of the ancient city of Ephesus, currently in the Selçuk district of the İzmir province, dates back to about 6000 BC.

    In the Hittite era, the name of the city was Apasas. In about 1050 BC, migrants from Greece began to live in this port, which moved to the vicinity of the Temple of Artemis in 560 BC. The city of Ephesus, of which ruins are visited today, was founded by one of Alexander the Great's generals, Lysimachus, in about 300 BC. Ephesus enjoyed its golden age in the Hellenistic and Roman periods, and as the capital of the province of Asia and a big port, its population was 200,000. However, in the Byzantine era, the city moved once again and came to the Ayasuluk Hill in Selçuk, where it was founded for the first time.
