Friends, Romans, Fellow citizens of the internet, I hope you enjoyed listening to this colloquium on Classical Asia Minor as much I enjoyed putting it together. I wanted to give you some of my favorite links that helped me prepare, starting with this helpful map of Greek colonies in Ionia. You can find a brief overview of the start of the Greco-Persian Wars here and if you want to read Herodotus’ account you can read an online version here.
Extra Credits has several videos on the accomplishments of Byzantine rulers Justinian and Theodora. Thanks Rissa for telling us about this!
Finally, I would be remiss not to recommend the podcast that inspired this entire series on Turkey. If you want to learn more about the pre-Socratic philosophers, make sure you check out Peter Adamson’s History of Philosophy Without Any Gaps.
That’s all for now. Have a great week and keep learning! -Clio
