Antioch in Pisidia

Antioch in Pisidia

Among the present ruins of this once important city are a large building, probably a church, of prodigious stones, of which the ground plan and the circular end for the bema still remain. There are also the ruins of a wall, of a temple of Dionysus, and of a small temple. ' Another construction, apparently of the principal temple, is cut in the rock in a semicircular form, in the centre of which a mass of rock has been left, which is hollowed out into a square chamber. Masses of highly finished marble cornices, with several broken fluted columns, are spread about the hollow. See Lewin, Life and Epistles of St. Paul, i, 137 sq.
