Abstract [en]

This study focuses on a quantitative analysis of Late Antique remains that have been recorded at Labraunda from 1948 to 2011, and that date mainly to the period c. AD 300-600. The finds are presented according to context in order to form more reliable chronologies and more profound find-related contextualization of the specific areas of study. The studied sample comprises of all the diagnostic material from Late Antiquity found at Labraunda, including architecture, architectural sculpture, ceramics, glass, inscriptions/graffiti, coins, organic remains, and various other small finds. The architectural remains include two church complexes, a residence with a tetraconch bath, and several rebuilt structures within the Classical temenos. Both the architectural remnants and the small finds are brought into wider socio-religious and socio-economic contexts in order to increase our knowledge of Labraunda at the end of Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages.
