Statues discovered in Turkey

Archaeological excavations in Turkey have unearthed two statues from the Roman Imperial Period in the ancient city of Aspendos, Antalya.

The 2,000-year-old statues belong to Jupiter (Zeus) and Venus (Aphrodite) and were discovered in the complex of several two-story Stoa stores, the Turkish Minister of Culture announced.

The Minister of Culture and Tourism Mehmet Nuri Ersoy said that "we are working to leave a legacy in the future" and announced that a new discovery has been made as a result of excavations carried out in Antalya.

"During excavations carried out as part of our Heritage for the Future project in the ancient city of Aspendos, two magnificent statues from the Roman Imperial Period were discovered," the Turkish minister noted.

The fascinating statues are of Zeus and Aphrodite, dating back 2000 years.

"I hope that the projects and constructions that we will build will be useful for the cultural and touristic life of our country", added the minister.
