Editorial Reviews


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.

....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
