Great Nymphaeum

The Great Nymphaeum was a public sanctuary in the city of Constantinople, built by early Romans in honor of Pagan spirits called Nymphs.

Nymphaea were a common feature of many Roman cities; in addition to serving as small reservoirs and gardens, they were frequently used by citizens for all manner of public functions such as weddings, parties, and general assemblies.
