The Agorai of Sagalassos in Late Antiquity: An Interpretive Study

In: Field Methods and Post-Excavation Techniques in Late Antique Archaeology
Author: Luke Lavan


This article investigates the history of the agorai and minor plazas, excavated at Sagalassos in SW Turkey, during late antiquity (A.D. 283 to ca. 650). It presents new field observations made by the author, based on a survey of stone surface markings, epigraphic context, and spoliation history, and offers an interpretive study of these spaces in terms of their function during the 4th–7th centuries A.D. An assessment of the significance of these observations for the nature of urban government in this period is also offered.
