Annexae sunt ejusdem origines Judaicae. Hagae-Comitis 1709. Reprint
Cassius Dio described his own age as one of “iron and rust.” This study, which is the first of its kind in English, examines the decline and decay that Cassius Dio diagnosed in this period (180-229 CE) through an analysis of the author’s historiographic method and narrative construction. It shows that the final books were a crucial part of Dio’s work, and it explains how Dio approached a period that he considered unworthy of history in view of his larger historiographic project.

The Architecture, History and Culture of the First Greek Colony in the Northern Black Sea
Greek colonisation of the Black Sea area is one of the most hotly disputed aspects of Black Sea archaeology, and the date of the first appearance of Greeks in this part of the ancient world is far from clear. The limited evidence gives us little idea of the character of these colonies and their physical appearance. This volume, the fourth in the Colloquia Pontica series, deals with Berezan, the first Greek colony established in the northern Black Sea, thus also the first of a ring of Greek city-states which linked the Western world with the vast steppe territory of the Scythians. For more than 100 years archaeologists from Russia and the Ukraine have been excavating this extraordinary island site. This is the first synthesis of their work in any language. It presents the history and archaeology of the site from its establishment in the 7th century BC down to the medieval period. It has 118 tables, maps and photographs.

The Herakleian peninsula or the Minor Khersonesos of Strabon is a plain territory in the South Western Crimea which served as the hinterland of the Greek city of Khersonesos Taurike. In ancient times this territory, divided up into plots and cultivated, constituted the agrarian base of the city-state. The ruins of farms had attracted the attention of scholars as early as the 18th and 19th centuries. Systematic archaeological excavations began in 1876. As a result a large amount of material was found revealing a complex political and agrarian network. An archaeological mission was set up in 1974; it was constituted by archaeologists from the Moscow State University and other Institutes. The expedition started working on the agrarian territory of Khersonesos Taurike and its main task was to draught a complete plan of the divisions of the Herakleian Peninsula as well as to find out the actual number of country estates contained within the area.
