Dmitriev, City Government in Asia Minor in BMCR

A review in BMCR 2007.07.63 of:

Sviatoslav Dmitriev, City Government in Hellenistic and Roman Asia Minor. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2005. Pp. xiii, 428. ISBN 0-19-517042-3. GBP 45.00.

Reviewed by Andrea Raggi, Dipartimento di Scienze Storiche del Mondo Antico, Università di Pisa. 1803 words

The reviewer summarises a useful work and makes some serious and convincing criticisms, including evidence of over-generalisation, use of epigraphic databases for searching and listing comparanda without enough attention to detail and local variation, and sometimes atypical conclusions. An epigraphic index, inventory of city offices, and bibliography seem to be particularly useful.
