This book provides a compact overview of the urban development and the city's monuments from the Bronze Age through the Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Turkish periods. The text has been written by the excavators, reflects the latest research, and is illustrated with many new photographs, plans, and reconstructions. The presentation of the monuments is arranged according to a circular walkway through the ruins. A second, longer walking tour leads to further monuments outside the central visitor area. In addition, the volume also includes chapters on history, on the street grid, and on flora and fauna, as well as a bibliography and a glossary.
