Deutsch: Die Eurymedonbrücke (Köprüpazar Köprüsü) ist eine alte Brücke nahe Aspendos in Pamphylien (Türkei).
English: The Eurymedon Bridge (Köprüpazar Köprüsü) is an old bridge near Aspendos, Pamphylia, Turkey. This bridge over the ‘Köprü Çayı’ (the ancient Eurymedon River) was situated on an important trade route, with the nearby Roman theater in use as caravanserai at the time. It was a toll bridge; that’s why it was not built in a straight line, but with an angle in its middle: wagons passing by had to slow down for the manoeuvre, and could more easily be stopped, if necessary. On the bridge there is a large building inscription (200 x 60 cm), reporting it was (re)built during the reign of Alaaddin Keykubat (1221-1237). It is 220 m long and has 7 arches; the road’s width varies from 6½ to 3½ meters. The bridge underwent a comprehensive restoration in 1991-2003.
