|A "gladiator" - pay to take his picture!|
Anavarza, near modern day Adana, was close to St. Paul's home city of Tarsus. Gladiator fights took place during the time that the New Testament was being written.
This is just one more spectacular discovery by archaeologists in Turkey, where there are an estimated 5,500 ancient cities.
Of those, about 800 sites are being explored, but none of them, even Ephesus, are anywhere near being completed for their archaeological heritage and riches.
