Inscription. English:
P. Vedius Antoninus Sabinus donated the small, temple-like monument which, according to a building inscription, honoured Emperor Hadrian (A.D. 117-138).
The colonnade in front of the cella supports a so-called Syrian gable. The reliefs over the door lintel depicting the Ephesian foundation myth belong to a late antique rebuilding. Around A.D. 300 statues of the emperors Diocletian, Constantius, Maximianus and later Theodosius I were erected, of which inscribed bases are preserved.

Turkish:
P. Vedius Antoninus Sabinus tarafından bağışlanan bu küçük tapınak benzeri anıt, mimari bir yazıta göre İmparator Hadrıanus'u (İ.S. 117-138) onurlandırmaktadır.
Kült odasının önünde bulunan sütun düzeneği Suriye tipi denilen türde bir alınlık taşımaktadır. Kapı lentosunun üzerinde Efes kentinin kuruluş efsanesinin canlandırıldıǧı kabartmalar Geç Antik Çağ'daki bir tadılata aittir. İ.S. 300 civarında buraya imparatorlar Diocletianus, Constantius, Maximianus ve daha sonra ise I. Theodosius'un heykelleri dikilmiş ve bunların yazıtlı kaideleri günümüze ulaşmıştır.
