About this work
The ruins of Laodicea including a theatre are seen with some local people and animals. The mountain of Yunt is seen in the background. Laodicea was earlier known as Diospolis and Rhoas. The city was the ancient Hellenistic metropolis of Phrygia Pacatiana (also attributed to Caria and Lydia), built on the river Lycus (Çürüksu), in Anatolia near the modern village of Eskihisar, Denizli Province, Turkey. The church at Laodicea was one of the Seven Churches to whom the Book of Revelation was addressed (Revelation 1:4 and 3:14)
