The Roman Council House of Aphrodisias and its Late Antique Phases
Berkeley-Lecture im Rahmen der Forschungskooperation zwischen der UC Berkeley und der LMU.
Enough of the Bouleuterion at Aphrodisias is preserved for a detailed reconstruction to be made of the building; and surviving inscriptions tell us something of its history. It was constructed ca. 200 CE, by Attalos Synkletikos – the Roman Senator – member of a leading Aphrodisian family. The building was subsequently refurbished by Antonius Priscus, Roman Governor of the province of Caria, ca. 390 CE. In the mid-5th century, a local Aphrodisian grandee, Flavius Ampelius, converted the orchestra of Attalos' building into a "palaestra" for the holding of sporting competitions.
