Magnesia

The city of Magnesia on the Maeander was founded around 400 BC. It was moved from its original location to a site near the sanctuary of Artemis Leukophryne, which faced the slopes of Mt.Thorax, and was planned on a Hippodamian grid oriented to the cardinal directions. This project tracks the interrelationship of landscape, ritual and architecture in an ancient Greek city. A digital publication is in preparation.
