Ephesus Museum of Vienna

Vienna Ephesus Museum

Since 1895, Austrian archaeologists have been excavating the ruins of Ephesus. Up to the year 1906, numerous recovered objects of high quality were removed to Vienna, objects which can be seen today at the Ephesus Museum, an annex to the Collection of Greek and Roman Antiquities. The highlights include the Parthian Monument, the Amazon from the Altar of the Artemision, the bronze Athlete statue, and the Child with a Goose. Alongside the Ephesian artifacts, the museum is also home to architectural specimens and sculptures from the Sanctuary of the Great Gods of the Mystery cult on the Greek island of Samothrace, which was explored by Austrian archaeologists in 1873 and 1875.
