View looking northeast at the northeast corner of  the Hellenistic fountain house that tapped one of the springs at Sagalassos. 

The Doric style structure has been partially reconstructed and is now functional again!  Note the Doric columns, the triglyphs and metopes.  The space between the columns and the walls is actually a large "basin" that contains water from the spring.

It was originally built in the first century B.C.  After several rebuilds it was severely damaged by an earthquake in A.D. 518.
