Menorah engraved on the steps of the Celsus Library
The image shows the engraving of a menorah on the steps of Celsus Library located in Ephesus, Turkey. It was most likely carved during the Roman era.
When St. Paul visited Ephesus in 53 CE, he found a sizable Jewish community there. However, no ruins of a synagogue have ever been discovered.
