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 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.

Review quote

This book amounts to a useful survey of stimulating current fieldwork and research carried out within the German-speaking and Anglophone traditions in modern Turkey. Scholars acquainted with urbanism in Asia Minor will find the contributions highly interesting and stimulating. -- Ine Jacobs American Journal Of Archaeology January 2014
