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.
