Cult of Goddesses in Ephesus

The city of Ephesus had been under the influence Phrygian Goddess Cybele initially. Cybele Cult evolved into the Greek Goddess Artemis following the rise of Ionian Leauge. The people of Ephesus built the largest temple of the Ancient Ages, which was dedicated to Artemis.

People became so obsessed with the Artemis, they declared the Greek Goddess as the protector of the city. They did not even bother to build walls around the city to protect themselves from the invasions. They believed that Artemis would do the job. However they ended up losing their city and temple to the Lydian King Croesus.
