This is a picture of Troas, a major seaport town in northwestern Asia Minor (present day Turkey). During Roman rule Troas was the port travelers needed to depart from to cross over to Macedonia for the remainder of the land route to Rome. The town of Troas is mentioned six times in the Bible, and it is where Paul saw the vision telling him to take his ministry into Macedonia (Acts 16: 6-10). You might also remember Troas as the place where Eutychus fell from the third story window as Paul preached (Acts 20: 6-10).
It's a beautiful picture!

Lucky you, to have visited such a place. I'd love to see that in person. Happy WW.
Ancient ruins always amaze me. It's remarkable that they have survived at all - at once fragile and immensely strong and resilient. Incredible stuff, and a beautiful picture and explanation.I’ve posted my WW photo here:http://writteninc.blogspot.com/2007/12/wordless-wednesday-juiced.htmlI hope you have a wonderful rest-of-Wordless Wednesday, and look forward to seeing more of your work.All the best,Carmi
Spectacular... and it breaths it's history!
