The Fountain of Trajan was built to the north side of Curetes Street, in the 2nd century AD and it was dedicated to the emperor Trajan. The pool of the fountain had been adorned with statues of Aphrodite, Dionysus, Satyr and the family of the Emperor. There were also columns surrounding it.

A colossal statue of Trajan had been placed over the pool. The water was flowing from the pedestal of Trajan’s statue to the fountain. Nowadays, only the feet of that statue have survived as well as a part of its facade which had been adorned with Corinthian order columns.
