9781606089293: Philippi at the Time of Paul and after His Death:

Representing a cooperative effort between archaeologists and New Testament scholars, this volume presents a full account of all archaeological finds related to Philippi as it existed in the early Roman Imperial period. In addition, it contains a discussion of the consequences of the discovery in Philippi of the early fourth-century "Basilika of Paul" and the subsequent construction of an octagon around an older tomb of a hero, suggesting that a cult of the martyr Paul flourished in Philippi during the fourth, fifth, and sixth centuries. The volume also includes the first-ever publication of a recently discovered inscription mentioning a Jewish synagogue, photographs, and illustrations.
