Review

"A handsomely illustrated memoir of ancient Antioch, once lost and now found again."--Choice



"[An] excellent catalog, creating, in effect, a handsomely illustrated memoir of ancient Antioch, once lost and now found again."--Choice



"Seldom can we see a governing class maintain its grip on a city from classical times into the early centuries of the Byzantine Empire. Seldom, also, have such a formidable and resilient group of persons managed to face down a changing world with such apparently effortless charm. It is on this aspect of Antioch that the catalog has concentrated most effectively and with most evident enthusiasm. A serious attempt is made to set the mosaics in their architectural context."--Peter Brown, New York Review of Books



"The more than one hundred color plates, detailed maps, comprehensive chronology, extensive bibliography and readable scholarly texts make the volume more than a mere exhibition catalog. It emerges as a standard text on the art and culture of an ancient civilization."--Lamia Doumato, Art Documentation

13 of 13 people found the following review helpful By James Jan Sullivan on February 21, 2001
Format: Paperback
Kondoleon's book is wonderful collection of articles and images that serve as an excellent introduction to the archeology of Antioch. The focus is late antique. Although Antoich is most famous for its mosaics, the book covers other subjects, including sculpture, coinage and baths etc. The color images are beautiful and the reconstructed layouts of the mosaics IN SITU are superb and very helpful in the study of interior private architecture. Especially interesting were the computer reconstructions of the Antiochene bathes and a church. I think this is an excellent direction in art historical works as they really help visualize the buildings that are being reconstructed.
All in all, a very useful and informative work.

Purchased this book for research on a novel I'm writing. The book is jam packed with great information. The illustrations are terrific and give you a real feel for what life must have been like in Roman Antioch. Follows the rise and decline of the city. Lots of info.

Format: Paperback
An excellent, informative and attractive work. Essentially this work is an overview of the artifacts found during excavations of the city. The articles were insightful and enjoyable. The images of art and mosaics were detailed and interesting. The articles on roman baths, magic tablets and Christianity were favorites.
