Abstract

After a long period of neglect, archaeological research in the ancient Ionian city of Kolophon in western Asia Minor was renewed from 2010 to 2014. As a starting point, a joint team of researchers from Turkey and Austria used the documentation from the 1922 and 1925 excavation campaigns led by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens and the Fogg Museum of Art at Harvard University. The new team explored the city using extensive surveys, geophysical exploration, and LiDAR scans. The results from this research give context to the American excavations, provide new information on the extent of the city and its necropolis areas, and create a preliminary model of the settlement patterns in the ancient city.
