Anastassios Ch. Antonaras

Arts, Crafts and Trades in Ancient and Byzantine Thessaloniki

Archaeological, Literary and Epigraphic Evidence

Byzanz zwischen Orient und Okzident

For the first time, the arts and crafts of Thessaloniki, once the second largest city in the Byzantine Empire after Constantinople, are examined thoroughly through archaeological remains, historical sources and epigraphic records.

More than 80 years of archaeological research and a life-time of personal research that covers 112 excavations, reveals at least 16 artisanal trades in detail. The book is organised chronologically with overviews of the political history and topography of Thessaloniki throughout its nineteen-centuries-long history. With an illustrated catalogue of each site and distribution maps, this work reveals relatively unknown aspects of life in Antiquity, the Early Christian period and Byzantium.

Slightly revised new edition of Anastassios Ch. Antonaras: Arts, Crafts and Trades in Ancient and Byzantine Thessaloniki Archaeological, Literary and Epigraphic Evidence of 2016
