Free sample

On the southern fringes of the Taurus mountains, in the modern town of Uzuncaburc, lie the ruins of the Hellenistic temple of Zeus-Olbios and of the ancient city of Diocaesarea. The impressive architectural remains reflect the turbulent history of the ancient site. In the Hellenistic period the extra-urban sanctuary was the centre of power of an extensive temple state, while in the early Roman Empire a city was established around the temple that blossomed until the 7th century AD. In 2001-2006 a record of all surface finds and a detailed documentation of buildings were made by an international team of archaeologists, architectural experts and historians. The series of monographs presents individual groups of material and building complexes, so offering an important contribution on the history of settlement in ancient Asia Minor and the development of ancient architecture.

The series will probably consist of five volumes:
Volume I: Norbert Kramer, The Ceramic Survey (2012)
Volume II: Marcello Spanu, The Theatre (2011)
Volume III: Johannes Linnemann, The Necropoleis (2013)

The next volume planned is Volume IV: Detlev Wannagat, The Sanctuary of Zeus-Olbios
