"What makes the work a valuable contribution is Tomlinson's complete command of a great mass of specialized archaeological reports. This enables him to give coherent interpretations of each city's role and development, and also--most unusual--to make illuminating comparisons. . . . The 13 maps and 74 illustrations supplement the text beautifully. Highly recommended"
"An enjoyable book for anyone interested in the urban character of the Classical, Hellenistic, and Roman worlds"
