International Archaeological Symposium
"Athens during the Roman Period: Recent Discoveries, New Evidence"
Athens, Benaki Museum – Pireos Street Annexe
19/10/2006 - 21/10/2006
The conference will explore the private and public life in Roman Athens through the presentation of unpublished material and recent excavations by specialists from Greece and abroad.
Its objective is to give a comprehensive description of the art and architecture, the everyday life and the inner city culture of the period between the 1st century B.C. and the 4th century A.D. The changes in the urban structure of Roman Athens, as well as the progress in sculpture, pottery and miniature art reveal how the Greek “legacy” is visually reconstructed under Roman rule, and to what extent this has been influenced by Roman notions.
The three-day colloquium introduces the most important finds of the Roman period that have been excavated in Athens in recent years. It offers classical archaeologists and students a unique opportunity to learn about the latest major discoveries, and to meet and converse with the excavators.
