Halicarnassian Studies VI presents, besides the publication of an Imperial-late antique necropolis outside the Myndos Gate in ancient Halikarnassos, a number of contributions concerning on-going and recent research on tombs and deathscapes.
Tombs and deathscapes of Halikarnassos
The necropolis outside the Myndos Gate in Halikarnassos. Four articles concern the publication of the 22 monumental tombs and their mosaics, the surveying and drawing of the necropolis, and the inscriptions that belonged to the tombs. In relation to this follows a linguistic analysis of two local funerary terms.
Intramural tombs and coffins in Halikarnassos. Two articles shed further light on aspects of death and burial in Halikaniassos - one through a recently excavated intramural necropolis, the other through some preliminary observations on sarcophagi.
The Maussolleion. Two articles revolve around finds made on the site that housed the most famous Karian tomb monument, the Maussolleion.
A funerary epigram from Halikamassos. One article scrutinizes a funerary epigram from Halikarnassos mentioning a family that moved from Thurii to Halikarnassos.
Deathscapes of the Halikarnassos peninsula and Karia
Çukurbük and Loryma. Two articles concentrate on necropoleis outside Halikarnassos - a first preliminary report on Çukurbük, a prehistoric necropolis on the Halikarnassos peninsula, and the deathscapes of Loryma on the Bozburun peninsula in the Karian Chersones.
