Archaeology and the cities of Asia Minor in late antiquity( Book )

"The city was the fundamental social institution of Greek and Roman culture. More than the sack of Rome, the abandonment of provincial towns throughout the Mediterranean world in late antiquity (fourth-seventh centuries A.D.) marks the beginning of the Middle Ages. This volume examines archaeological evidence for this last phase of urban life in western Asia Minor, one of the Roman empire's most prosperous regions. Based on the proceedings of a symposium co-sponsored by the University of Michigan and the German Archaeological Institute, it brings together studies by an international group of scholars on topics ranging from the public sculpture of Constantinople to the depopulation of the Anatolian countryside in early Byzantine times"--Jacket flap

Lydian masonry and monumental architecture at Sardis by Christopher John Ratté( )

16 editions published between 1989 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the sixth to the fourth centuries B.C., the western Anatolian kingdom of Lydia was the home of a distinctive local tradition of ashlar masonry construction. Ashlar masonry is found in tumulus tomb chambers throughout Lydia, and in both tombs and civic structures at the capital city of Sardis. This study considers the monuments of Sardis and environs, paying special attention to the evidence of unfinished structures for techniques of construction
The countryside of Aphrodisias by Christopher John Ratté( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aphrodisias is one of the most important archaeological sites of the Greek and Roman periods in Turkey. Excavations at Aphrodisias have been carried out by New York University since 1961 and have revealed an unusually well-preserved and picturesque ancient town. A survey of the surrounding territory undertaken between 2005 and 2009 resulted in the discovery of hundreds of new sites spanning three millennia of human occupation in the region. This book presents the rich archaeological remains of the countryside of Aphrodisias, ranging from isolated farmsteads to fortified citadels, from burial mounds to marble quarries, and from Roman aqueducts to Ottoman cisterns

The iconography and cult of the Aphrodite of Aphrodisias by Lisa R Brody( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The surviving representations of the Aphrodisian goddess appear in a variety of materials and media: marble, bronze, and terra-cotta; free-standing and relief sculptures; engraved gemstones and coins. In addition to the examples from Aphrodisias, images of the goddess are found throughout the entire Roman Empire. Numerous statuettes and statues have been discovered in Italy, particularly in Rome, as well as at sites in Turkey, Greece, the Balkans, Lebanon, North Africa, and Portugal. This broad distribution testifies to the geographic diffusion and widespread popularity of the Aphrodite of Aphrodisias around the Mediterranean during the Imperial era
Towards an agora: The spatial and architectural development of Greek commercial and civic space in the Peloponnese by Jamieson C Donati( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through a detailed examination of the archaeological and literary evidence, the physical features and social framework of the agoras at Argos, Corinth, Elis, and Megalopolis come into greater focus and help write a different history of the Greek agora. Despite the disproportionate emphasis placed on the political underpinnings of the agora, this study shows that political activity and civic buildings played a less conspicuous role in the agora's early development. There is also no measurable impact of democracy on the agora's physical composition at those Peloponnesian cities that adopted democratic constitutions (Argos, Elis, and Megalopolis). Instead, the agoras at these centers were shaped by disparate factors, such as trade and commerce, urban cults and religious festivals, and the means of transportation and communication. It is this mixing of activities that characterizes the Greek agora, and marks its inherently diverse role in the urban fabric of city

The Bishop's Palace at Aphrodisias: A late Roman townhouse in the center of the city by Michelle Lita Berenfeld( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The townhouse occupies a city block on the north side of the Agora, and is next door to the city council house, an area that is likely to have originally served public purposes. The late antique house comprises a central peristyle court, a triple-apsed dining room, an apsidal audience hall, and several more public and private spaces. This work provides an in-depth study of the architecture and interior decoration of the house, and a presentation of the building as it appeared in the fourth through the sixth centuries A.D. This is followed by a comparative study of late antique townhouses and villas in the Roman empire. The layout, organization, and decoration of the house are representative of empire-wide trends in late antique domestic buildings, which were designed to suit the social and political lives of the late Roman elite

Sarcophagi and funerary display in Roman aphrodisias by Heather N Turnbow( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Though few complete funerary monuments are preserved at Aphrodisias, the original display installations of sarcophagi can be partially re-created through a detailed study of archaeological remains in the necropoleis, sarcophagus findspots, descriptions of tomb structures in inscriptions, and comparanda from other sites in Asia Minor. The evidence suggests primarily above-ground display of sarcophagi, often as the uppermost element in a family tomb monument. The vertical arrangement of burials within the tomb suggests a concern with preserving the hierarchical structure of the Roman family
