From the Italian cities of Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Ostia to the North African cities of Carthage, Timgad, and Lepcis Magna to the Eastern cities of Athens, Ephesus, and Palmyra, and the Northern cities of Trier, Nimes, Arles, and London, we are given an entire architectural tour of the Roman Empire in 125 pages! A Four page Timeline near the beginning of the book summarizing key political and cultural events of Roman history is especially helpful. No less than 16 accompanying coin illustrations bearing the portraits of Roman and Byzantine rulers in chronological order accompanies the Timeline. All in all, this book is a little gem.
