6 x 9
Gortyna is best known for its early Greek law code, but the larger site is a well preserved Roman-era city with a variety of surviving buildings and monuments. This paper gives a thorough overview of the topography and major building remains at Gortyna as well as inscriptions found at the site. Although Gortyna has been excavated much further in the intervening decades, this paper still presents a solid overview of the site as a whole and represents an important part of the site's excavation history.
