The most complete account of the classical city of Antioch, this study incorporates the findings of the excavations of 1932-1939. Dr. Downey, who participated in the excavations, tells the story of the rise and fall of Antioch, with nineteen excursuses, closely integrated with the text, affording a rich store of data on travel books, maps, and information on the walls, stadia, churches, etc. of the city. Originally published in 1961. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
