Artemision [Αρτεμίσιον] was the temple of the Olympian goddess

of hunting, wilderness and wild life Artemis who was sister of

Apollo. The temple was build at 550 BCE in Ephesus. It was included

in travel guides of the ancient times in the Hellenistic period as

one of the seven wonders someone had to see in his life time as we

do today for places of interest. Antipater of Sidon was the first

to leave written evidence of these travel guides.
