Nicomedia
#1
Does anyone know of any studies of Roman Nicomedia? There seems to be almost nothing available online, not even a plan of the city. Seems strange, for such an important place...

Any suggestions much appreciated!

Thanks - I'd seen that one already though. It might have been helpful, although it's entirely about the local economic infrastructure rather than the city itself, but all the plans and maps have been removed 'for copyright purposes'...

I found this when I was looking for reference material of that city recently:

There is a drawn 'reconstruction' of part of the city, but I can't say houw accurate it is.:

Like you, I found there to be a lack of pictorial information on the city, which I found surprising.

Thanks. Yes, I'd seen those too, and found them similarly vague! No idea how the pretty-looking reconstruction drawing might equate to any actual remains of the city or known archaeology...

I know there's some sort of palace superstructure ruin remaining in modern Izmit, probably Tetrarchic, and presumably some other traces as well, but there seems to be absolutely nothing published about them, at least in English.
