Nymphaeum of Herodes Atticus - was a two story fountain that was erect by Roman senator Atticus Herodes (who was born in Greece). Dedicated to the Nymphs of water. This would have been connected to the aqueduct that the Romans had built around 100 B.C. but Atticus lived in 100 A.D. It contained statues of his family the families of the three Roman emperors of his time (Antoninus Pius, Hadrian, and Marcus Aurelius).
