Product description

The region of Rough Cilicia, modern area the south-western coastal area of Turkey, known in antiquity as Cilicia Tracheia, constitutes the western part of the larger area of Cilicia. It is characterized by the ruggedness of its territory and the protection afforded by the high mountains combined with the rugged seacoast fostered the prolific piracy that developed in the late Hellenistic period, bringing much notoriety to the area. The 22 papers presented here give a useful overview on current research on Rough Cilicia, from the Bronze Age to the Byzantine period, with a variety of methods, from surveys to excavations.
