Book Description: House of Stratus, 2000. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: English summary: The so-called Nymphaeum Traiani, discovered during the excavations of the 1950s, relates to a monumental fountain in the center of Roman Ephesus, which was constructed between 102 and 114 CE. The presented publication, appeared in the context of the series "Studies in Ephesus," covers all aspects of the structure up to the detailed architectonic reconstruction and the sculptures positioned in the aedicular facade. In the central position over the water inlet is situated a stature of the Emperor Trajan, to which the installation owes its modern name. On account of the extensive contextual analysis it can be seen that the fountain was only of minor importance for the water supply of the Roman city. The overview of the monument, however, moves into the focus its founders Tiberius Claudius Aristion and Iulia Lydia Laterane, who not only established an almost 40 km aqueduct but also had at their disposal personal connections to the emperor. Beyond the Nymphaeum Traiani it is consequently possible to come across further testaments for the use of architectural type of the "nymph facade" and for the self representation of the Roman elite in the Asia Minor during the Roman Empire. The study was published with the support of the Endowment for the Promotion of Scholarly Research (Fonds zur Forderung der wissenschaftlichen Forschung /FWF). German description: Bei dem von den Ausgrabern in den 1950er Jahren so genannten Nymphaeum Traiani handelt es sich um eine monumentale Brunnenanlage im Zentrum des romischen Ephesos, die zwischen 102 und 114 n. Chr. errichtet wurde. Die im Rahmen der Reihe "Forschungen in Ephesos" vorgelegte Publikation behandelt alle wesentlichen Aspekte dieses Bauwerks, so etwa die detaillierte architektonische Rekonstruktion und die in der Tabernakelfassade aufgestellten Skulpturen. An zentrale Stelle uber dem Wasserzufluss befand sich eine Statue Kaiser Traians, der die Anlage ihren modernen Namen verdankt. Anhand der ausfuhrlichen kontextuellen Analyse lasst sich zeigen, dass der Brunnen selbst nur eine geringe Bedeutung fur die Wasserversorgung der romischen Stadt besass. Die Gesamtaussage des Monuments ruckt vielmehr seine Stifter Ti. Claudius Aristion und Iulia Lydia Laterane ins Zentrum, die nicht nur einen fast 40 km Aquadukt errichten liessen, sondern auch uber personliche Verbindungen zum Kaiser verfugten. Uber das Nymphaeum Traiani hinaus ist es somit moglich, weiterfuhrende Aussagen zur Nutzung des Bautyps "Fassadennymphaum" und zur Selbstdarstellung romischer Eliten im kaiserzeitlichen Kleinasien zu treffen. Gedruckt mit Unterstutzung des Fonds zur Forderung der wissenschaftlichen Forschung (FWF). Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_1842322915
