    Turkish archaeologists have uncovered an ancient brothel in Antalya and hope to attract a sponsor amid a lack of investment.

    Bad Investment?

    The team of archaeologists in Antalya are hoping to find sponsors after an ancient brothel was found.

    "Our budget from the Ministry of Culture and Tourism has been cut drastically. It has dropped by two thirds compared to last year," Professor Hüseyin Sabri Alanyalı said, as cited by Hurriyet.

    "If we can find a sponsor, we want to complete our work at the Temple of Apollo, the Temple of Athena and around the basilica," he added.

    Unfortunately, the discovery of the brothel might scare away potential investors.
