The city of Konya (ancient Iconium) has long been one of the most important Anatolian centres. In the late first century BC it was refounded as a Roman colony, and the centuries of the Roman Empire were among the most prosperous for the region.
From the eighteenth century onwards, travellers in the region have recorded the rich harvest of inscriptions from Konya and the surrounding district. This volume provides texts and commentaries for the 231 Greek and ten Latin inscriptions at present in the city's archaeological museum. The collection comprises 92 inscriptions from the city itself and 149 from the surrounding region, nearly two thirds of them previously unpublished. Almost two hundred further inscriptions from Konya, previously published but not now in the museum, are listed and indexed at the end of the volume, so that for the first time there is a complete index of all people known from the ancient city of Iconium. The texts here shed light on city and country society around a major centre from the early Roman to the Byzantine period, and the photographs at the end of the volume illustrate most of the characteristic inscribed monuments for the first time.
