New Cities in Late Antiquity
This volume edited by Efthymios Rizos stems from a conference held in Istanbul on 9-10 November 2013 under the auspices of the Netherlands Institute in Turkey and the Istanbul Department of the German Archaeological Institute.
It offers a different perspective on the debate, exploring the application of late antique urban ideals ‘on virgin ground’. Based on recent archaeological fieldwork and synthetic studies, twenty papers outline the state of research and discuss the motives and products of city-building from the late third to the seventh centuries AD.
