Raised to honour Maussolos, a Persian satrap of the 4th century BCE, the Maussolleion in Halikarnassos was renowned throughout the ancient world as one of its Seven Wonders. Pliny the Elder provided a useful description of it several centuries later, but another fourteen passed before the invention of moveable type made his observations available to a wider public. In Volume 5, Jeppesen tries to reconcile Pliny's account of the superstructure with recent archaeological finds. The passage in Pliny's Natural History has been corrupted by untold generations of copyists, and reconstructions have focused on producing a grammatically acceptable text, with little regard for consistency and sense. Jeppesen compares variant readings from the 58 known manuscripts and proposes a model that tallies with the new archaeological evidence. The volume concludes with a survey of the architectural fragments held by the British Museum and the Maussolleion Museum in Bodrum.

The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus was one of the Seven Wonders of the World. This is the first complete catalogue of its friezes and other decorative reliefs. Detailed descriptions are illustrated by hundreds of previously unpublished photographs. Also discussed are the discovery of the Mausoleum and the controversy about who carved its friezes.

The Salmakis Inscription takes its name from the place where it was discovered in 1995, the promontory of Kaplan Kalesi of Salmakis, which stretches out into the sea, southwest of the harbor opposite the Castle. The inscription was discovered by the Turkish authorities on an ancient wall, and a preliminary study was under-taken by the directorate of Bodrum Museum and the Danish Halikarnassos team. The inscription was new evidence of a Hellenistic city proud of its position as a cultural center and of its international connections. In contrast, Halikarnassos is almost completely absent from modern works on the Mediterranean world after Alexander. This book is an attempt to remedy that situation. The present volume is a result of the international seminar held in Bodrum on August 29 to September 2, 2000.

Transport amphorae were chosen as the theme of this colloquium because of their great potential for elucidating ancient economic history. As Peacock and Williams have noted, amphorae provide us not with anindex of the transportation of goods, but with direct witness of the movement of certain foodstuffs which were of considerable economic importance.... It is hard to conceive of any archaeological material better suited to further our understanding of Roman trade. The same could be said with equal conviction about Hellenistic trade. However, while the study of transport amphorae was already an established discipline in the 19th century, it has traditionally focused on amphora stamps. Even in the 1970s, excavators in the eastern Mediterranean were still disregarding-and even discarding-unstamped fragments. Yet if amphora studies remain somewhat in the realm of epigraphy, they have also seen a great deal of activity in the last decade and drawn increasing attention from archaeologists, historians and other researchers. Jonas Eiring and John Lund are both classical archaeologists. Lund is a curator at the National Museum of Denmark, Copenhagen.
