Nemrud Dagi

The Hierothesion of Antiochus I of Commagene - Results of the American Excavations Directed by Theresa B. Goell Volume 1: Texts Volume 2: Illustrati

Edited by Donald H. Sanders

These two volumes chronicle the pioneering efforts of Theresa Goell and international teams to record accurately and comprehensively the material remains of Nemrud Dagi, to interpret their meaning, and to provide access for the scholarly community to the wealth of data heretofore unavailable. Donald Sanders has here brought those efforts to fruition by publishing the results of the survey and excavations in the first comprehensive report on the site in more than a century. Volume 1 contains the written reports on excavations, edited and supplemented by Sanders. Volume 2 contains more than 600 illustrations, including many line drawings and photos never before published. This publication will provide researchers with much information pertinent to the art, history, and religion of Hellenistic Asia Minor and the Seleucid dynasty.
