Aphrodisias, City of Venus Aphrodite
by Kenan T. Erim
Introduction by John Julius Norwich
Publisher: Facts On File Publications
"I have selected this one city from all of Asia as my own," said the Emperor Augustus, Aphrodisias was the Florence of the Roman world in a beautiful setting near a quarry of peculiarly translucent marble. This city, two and a half times the size of Pompeii, was a wonder of the ancient world. It vanished from history in an earthquake in the fourth century A.D. and its temples, palaces, amphitheatres, statues and archives slept unplundered until rediscovered only forty years ago. The author, Professor Kenan Erim, is in charge of the dig which annually reveals architectural and artistic marvels, chronicled and pictured in this remarkable book. The National Geographic Magazine has photographed the process of their discovery. This dazzling array can now be seen in this ruined metropolis in south western Turkey.
