9781900188135: From Function to Monument: An Architectural History of the Cities of Roman Palestine, Syria and Arabia: Urban Landscapes of Roman Palestine, Syria, ... Arabia (Oxbow Monographs in Archaeology, 6

An inspiring new look at the monumental buildings of the Roman cities of the east: colonnaded streets, gates and triumphal arches; agora, markets, ornamental plazas: nymogaea. Segal analyses the way in which cities channelled their energies into the building of monumental structures to display their civic pride, their newly won economic affluence and their loyalty to Rome and the emperor. Finding inspiration in Rome, they competed with each other in the creation of public buildings to adorn the urban landscape. Extensively illustrated with plans and photos.
