Eurymedon Bridge

Local nameOluk Köprü
LocationAntalya, Turkey

The Eurymedon Bridge is a Roman bridge over the river Eurymedon near Selge in Pisidia in southern Turkey. It is part of the road winding up from the coastal region Pamphylia to the Pisidian hinterland. Located 5 km north of the village Beşkonak in a sparsely settled area, the bridge crosses the Eurymedon high above the valley bottom.The excellently preserved structure is 14 m long and 3.5 m wide. The clear span of its single arch is c. 7 m, the thickness of its voussoirs, which were set without the use of mortar, 60 cm. The building technique and the sturdy stonework point to a construction date in the 2nd century AD, a time when Selge was flourishing.42 km downstream at Aspendos, the Eurymedon is crossed by another extant old bridge.
