Overview

This volume focuses on the architectural development of the sanctuary from its foundation in the late seventh century B.C. to the end of the pre-Imperial Roman phase (31 B.C.). The main periods of sanctuary architecture treated in the volume took shape in the shadow of major historical events of Cyrene, from its colonial foundation and through its rapid expansion under the Battiad monarchs, and its eventual struggle with Persian-occupied Egypt. This is followed by Cyrene's tumultuous and as yet poorly understood fifth century, and its loss of independence under the Ptolemies.
