Ephesus was the capital of Asia Minor, a center of land and sea trade, and, along with Alexandria and Antioch in Syria, one of the three most influential cities in the eastern part of the Roman Empire.  From Ephesus goods were shipped to other Mediterranean ports.  This hug city contained a theater (seating about 25,000; Acts 19:29); an agora (“town square” that also served as the marketplace of goods and ideas), public baths, a library, and several temples.
