Byzantium and the Bosporus

A Historical Study, from the Seventh Century BC until the Foundation of Constantinople

Thomas Russell

Oxford Classical Monographs

  • Draws on a regional historical approach to offer a rare insight into the history of Byzantium, in comparison with the many books available about Istanbul and Constantinople
  • Utilizes a wide variety and range of sources, including many otherwise difficult to access for an English readership, such as Dionysius of Byzantium's treatise on the Bosporus
  • Explores the history of the ancient city from a thematic perspective, providing nuanced insights into topics including economic history, industry, and imperialism
