Gymnasium of Ephesus

Gymnasion of Ephesus

The gymnasium was a place where athletes could train for competitions in public games, such as the Olympic Games. Gymnos means naked. Only men were allowed to enter, and train; they did so fully naked. Ephesus had four big gymnasiums and today the best-preserved one is nearby the grand theater. Some parts of the ”palaestra” and bath walls can be seen around the theater gymnasium of Ephesus
