This report on the British excavations at Sabratha, directed by Kathleen Kenyon and John Ward-Perkins, uses the original records of the excavations. The work includes chapters on the Forum, East Forum Temple, Capitolium, Basilica/Church and Temple of Sarapis, insulae, the Severan Monument, the Theatre, the Byzantine Defences and the Harbour, and on the pottery. Dr Kenrick has revised the structural history of Roman Sabratha, adding much to the understanding of its origins

MAMA X contains material from seven cities and their territories: verse and prose epitaphs, dedications to local pagan gods, monuments of early Christianity, boundary stones, and other texts which reveal many aspects of rural life in the villages of Phrygia. Most of the monuments are published here for the first time

Monumenta Asiae Minoris Antiqua XI: Monuments from Phrygia and Lykaonia is a corpus of 387 Greek and Latin inscriptions and other ancient and medieval monuments from inner Anatolia (Phrygia, Lykaonia, and south-western Galatia). Most of these monuments were recorded by William Calder and Michael Ballance in annual expeditions to Asia Minor between 1954 and 1957. The results of these expeditions were never published, and around three-quarters of the monuments in the volume are published here for the first time. All the inscriptions are translated in full, with extensive commentaries and photographic illustration. The volume includes a geographical introduction to the sites and regions covered by the corpus, and full indices.

This is an extensive introduction to the text and transmission of the ancient Latin version of the medical works Therapeutica and On Fevers of the great 6th-century Greek doctor Alexander of Tralles. The Latin Alexander’s importance in medieval medicine in the West is seen in the richness of both mainstream and secondary, excerpting MS traditions. The volume comprises an introduction to Alexander; an outline account of his works in Greek compared with the Latin version; a description of the Latin manuscript copies, and a proposed reconstruction of the genetic relations between them; some preliminary remarks on the Latinity of the Latin Alexander; and a sample edition, with translation, critical apparatus, and extensive notes, of the chapters on coughing at the start of Book 2.

One of the greatest achievements of Roman hydraulic engineering, the water supply of Constantinople included the longest known aqueduct channels from the ancient world and the most complex system of water storage and distribution within the city itself. This monograph presents the results of ten years of fieldwork and research and provides a detailed account of the water channels and great bridges outside the city and the first comprehensive concordance of the water storage inside the city documenting over 150 cisterns. There is a historical introduction from Roman to early Ottoman times supported by a detailed collection of ancient sources translated into English. Later chapters integrate more closely the structural evidence with the written texts and provide the basis for new interpretations of the historical texts. Specific studies are concerned with the unique Christian iconography of the bridges and with the masons’ marks recorded from them. The volume is illustrated by detailed maps showing the course of the channels and the location of the water bridges, together with detailed elevation drawings of the great bridges in the wooded countryside outside the city. Within the city the cisterns are plotted in detail for the first time enabling an appreciation of the water system in its topographical setting.

This book provides a reliable and readable translation of the writings of the Roman land surveyors. Although these works were first collected together probably in the 5th century AD, this is the first attempt to produce a translation into English of all the most significant texts and to present them in a single volume, along with a Latin text and glossary. There is an historical introduction and commentary on ancient surveying and its historical importance in terms of law, society, and economy, and also the relationship of the texts to the identification of Roman field systems and settlements.
