    Review quote
    "This is a useful and concise archaeological survey of ancient cities, which includes a glance at their aqueducts, sewers, and public buildings, and a brief appendix on the various laws the cities enacted to govern urban growth."-"Choice ...".this is a fine "first book" on its topic...This book is not about the city in the identity-bestowing sense, but it provides necessary detail for such an understanding of one of the fundamental institutions of the Greco-Roman world."-A.T. Kraabel, "Religious Studies Review
