In the tradition of Schliemann's use of Homer to find the site of Troy, Clarke uses literary sources (including Strabo, Pausanias, Homer, Vergil, and Herodotus) and topography, to suggest locations for the sites of ancient Gargara, Lamponia, and Pionia in the Troad (the area surrounding the site of Troy). These cities were centers of trade and commerce from the time of Homer to the Roman empire. Includes a description of the excavated walls of Gargara and its cisterns with illustrations, and discusses the proposed sites for Lamponia and Pionia.
