The Celsus Library was a public ancient library from the Roman period in Ephesus (near the present-day city of Selçuk in Turkey). Their remains were discovered during excavations in 1903. It was built between 117 and 125 by the family of the suffect consul Iulius Celsus, who belonged to the knighthood. How long the library was in operation is unknown. In the 3rd or 4th century at the latest, the building was integrated into a residential building.Source: Wikipedia
