Olympos, Turkey

Olympos (GreekὌλυμπος) was an ancient city in Lycia. It was situated in a river valley near the coast. Its ruins are located south of the modern town Çıralı in the Kumluca district of Antalya ProvinceTurkey.  When it got too hot we would go for a swim to cool down in the delicious sea.  Walking in the ruins made me wonder how long our cities will last.  One of the artists made a print of the writing above to use as texture, and as a subtext while working in this ancient place.
