The city of Artemis with white eyebrows lies near a tributary to the River Meander. Founded by the Magnets and named after them the city is known with the temple to Artemis designed by ancient architect Hermogenes. It was unearthed in the early twentieth century but WWI halted the work and it came under silt once again. Under systematic excavations since 1984 many more monuments have brought to daylight: theater, stadium, agora, market basilica, houses, and so on.

Sculpted figural motifs were an important component of many buildings in the Hellenistic world, and their frequent relegation to subsidiary status has, until now, left our knowledge of both Hellenistic architecture and sculpture incomplete. In Hellenistic Architectural Sculpture, Pamela A. Webb examines the full range of figural embellishment--from simple to complex, on large monuments as well as on more obscure ones, and in the major population centers as well as the smaller cities, sanctuaries, and isolated areas throughout western Anatolia and the Aegean islands. In this book, the first to focus specifically on the figural adornment of Hellenistic architecture, Webb provides extensive information about the chronology and interpretation of figural motifs adorning religious, civic, commercial, commemorative, and domestic constructions. She finds that figural sculptures adorn structures at every level from the ground to the roof, and display a wide variety of motifs on such architectural elements as columns, walls, entablatures, and pediments. More than 130 illustrations of Hellenistic monuments--temples, altars, cult buildings, heroa, theaters, bouleuteria, stoas, gymnasia, and houses--and their sculptured adornment complement the author's descriptions and analyses. The book features an extensive bibliography, citing resources from the early nineteenth century to the most recent publications.

Menderes Magnesias

This splendid book records the excavation of the 'theatron' (area for spectators) at the site of Magnesia on the Menderes, in Turkey. It is estimated that the site was established around 400 BC, and achieved its fame due to the impressive work of the architect Hermogenes, who built the Temple of Artemis Leukophrene during the Hellenistic period. The 'theatron' sits on an east-west axis, facing north on the slopes of the city, to the south of the theatre, and a few minutes' walk from the SW corner of the Byzantine wall. Although the theatron has been fully excavated, it's function is still something to be assumed, rather than known. The book is heavily illustrated with photographs and plans. English and Turkish.

This festschrift honors UCLA professor emerita Susan Downey and her meticulous scholarship on religious architecture and imagery in the Roman/Hellenistic world. The iconography of gods and goddesses, the analysis of sacred imagery in the context of ancient cult practices, and the design and decoration of sacred spaces are the main themes of the book. Authors examine such subjects as painting from Dura-Europos, Hellenistic sculpture at Saqqara in Egypt, Roman cameo glass, Pompeian fresco, and aspects of Venus in portrait sculpture. The essays on Dura-Europos are especially valuable in light of the present turmoil in the region. Professor Downey's influence shines through in these discussions, which echo her mentorship of several generations of art history and archaeology students and recognize her scholarly achievements. The broad temporal and geographic parameters of the volume are expansive, and the juxtaposition of images and analyses leads to surprising new conclusions.
