Ephesus Distances

The land routes that converged on Ephesus included:
1- The Colossae / Laodicea road (traveling east),
2- The road to Sardis and Galatia (northeast), and
3- The Smyrna (north) main road.

Population:
Some scholars estimate the number of people living at Ephesus to have exceeded 250,000 inhabitants during Ephesus III, which would make it perhaps the fourth largest of its day behind:
1- Rome;
2- Alexandria; and
3- An Antioch. This large a city was an economic stronghold in Asia Minor, and justified the title supreme metropolis of Asia though there is an evidence that its overall economic standing may have been slowly declining.
