Diocletian's palace built on the Dalmatian coast for his retirement in AD 305 has long remained a point of reference in Roman art and architecture for the transition from Antiquity to the Middle Ages. Professor Wilkes here offers a detailed account of the surviving remains of the palace and of its exploration in modern times. He also discusses the continuing debate regarding the architectural origins and true purpose of a building which was a major source of inspiration in the European classical revival of the 18th century. First published in 1986 this is a corrected reprint with additional illustrations.
