Caesarea Maritima, a port town on the Mediterranean coast about 40km north of modern Tel Aviv, was founded by King Herod the Great sometime shortly after 22 BC and flourished as a major urban centre during the first six centuries C.E. The 411 inscriptions included in this volume represent the finds of a quarter of a century of investigation at the site and bear crucial testimony to the civil and military organization, urban construction, religion and funerary practices of an important Roman and Byzantine provincial centre. In addition, the language of the Greek and Latin inscriptions provides important insights into the evolution of those languages as well as information on the demographic, ethnic and social make-up of the population of Caesarea Maritima in the Roman and Late Antique Periods.
