Metropolis is a city of the Mother Goddess in Ionia. The classical city of Metropolis is situated 45 km
from Izmir and the Aegean coast overlooking the Torbalı plain alongside the İzmir - Aydın motorway.
In classical times the communication route was the Cayster River (Küçük Menderes) and Metropolis
lay at the mid point between Smyrna and Ephesus. Lying beneath the classical city are Neolithic and
Bronze Age settlements - and above the classical city is a Byzantine settlement and fort, also used during
the Ottoman period. Metropolis lived its golden era during the Late Hellenistic Period. Altars were
erected in honour of Emperor Augustus during Roman Imperial Period. It became a bishopric in the
Age of Byzantine Empire. Its people governed the city from its acropolis, worshipped gods, wandered
and shopped in its stoa, decided on city in bouleuterion, enjoyed plays in its theatre. Now archaeologists
are excavating where Metropolis once built, tracking past civilizations authoring the story of humanity
reaching our days from centuries ago. The site has been excavated for the past 18 years by the Dokuz
Eylül University, İzmir under the guidance of Professor Recep Meriç. From 2007 Dr Serdar Aybek from
The University of Trakya has taken over leadership of the excavation.
