Incorporating over a century of archaeological research, Greaves offers a reassessment of Archaic Ionia that attempts to understand the region within its larger Mediterranean context and provides a thematic overview of its cities and people.

  • Seeks to balance the Greek and Anatolian cultural influences at work in Ionia in this important period of its history (700BC to the Battle of Lade in 494BC)
  • Organised thematically, covering landscape, economy, cities, colonisation, warfare, cult, and art
  • Accesses German and Turkish scholarship, presenting a useful point of entry to the published literature for academics and students
