Located 4 km. inland from the Mediterranean Sea in the Aksu district of Antalya, Perge expanded southward during the Hellenistic period. Excavations were initiated in 1946 and have continued uninterrupted since 1960. Figural sculpture and reliefs uncovered have already shown with the unity of their style that Perge was a centre of sculpture.
