The library of Celsus is an ancient Roman building in Ephesus, Turkey.  It was built in honor of the Roman Senator Tiberius Julius Celsus Polemaeanus (completed in 135 AD) by Celsus' son, Gaius Julius Aquila (consul, 110 AD).  Celsus had been consul in 92 AD, governor of Asia in 115 AD, and a wealthy and popular local citizen.  Befor reconstruction, it was three stories high and was built to accommodate 12,000 scrolls.  Celsus is buried there.
