  • The breathtaking marble ruins of the ancient city of Aphrodisias in southwestern Turkey boast numerous inscriptions and graffiti by Christians, Jews and pagans who were at home there in the Byzantine period (fourth-sixth centuries C.E.). A 9-foot-high synagogue inscription contains the names of Jews, proselytes and Godfearers, people who were members of the Jewish community but had not converted. Many of them were apparently Christian.
