Archaeologists have found a Byzantine trading and gastronomic zone in Ephesus 1,400 years ago.

Scientists say the area was destroyed suddenly, probably around 614 BC. Exactly at that time there was a second earthquake, which partially demolished ancient Ephesus. The new discovery sheds new light on the process of degradation of the once notable city.
