his Path in the center of the city takes it's name from the guardians of Artemis, the Corobanties also known as the Curetes.
The Path of the Corobanties stretches from the Gate of the Heracles to the Library of Celsus.
The Curetes of the Temple of Artemis consisted of 9 individuals, working under the auspices of the Prytaneum or City Council during the Roman Era, they soon emerged as among the most importantly annually elected religious officials.
And so Ask the Curetes to make up obnoxious noise with their weapons and thus distract Hera from the birth.
These semi-divine mythological creatures later gave their name to one of the larger priestly cast in Ephesus.
The Path existed in the Ancient Era, too.
As can be drawn from the fact that it was also a part of path for festivities during the Artemis Celebration.
The picture should not misguide you because this Path is mostly packed with tourist crowds, and that's where nearly all ephesus tourist guides recommend their guest to give a photo break for their guests to have their iconic Ephesus shots.
An elaborate sewage system runs beneath the path's marble foundations.
Porticoes and shelters that protected travelers from the sun and rain stood on the upper section of the pathway.
In front of every column on this upper section a pedestal with inscriptions can be found on which statues honoring individuals that contributed to the welfare of the city were erected.
At the lower end of the street various public buildings were built with their facades facing the Road.
Columned porticoes with mosaic flooring dominated this part of the Path.
Shops, workshops, restaurants, houses and other structures lie in the route to these porticoes.
