Excerpt

This book began as a thesis for the Ph.D of London University. The topic and general approach were suggested by my teacher, the late Professor A. H. M. Jones. I was supervised by Professor A. D. Momigliano. My studies were assisted by the Lloyd Scholarship of University College and the Lincoln Shelley Studentship of the University of London. I am grateful to Professor R. Browning for encouragement and help, and to Professor A. F. Norman for lending me voluminous notes of work on Libanius which was at that time entirely unpublished. At a later stage Professors G. Downey and J. Lassus helpfully answered requests for information. Dr. R. O. Davies, Dr. E. J. F. Primrose, and Professor R. E. F. Smith enabled one ignorant of Russian to learn from papers of Professor G. L. Kurbatov. Professor E. Kirsten provided me with a copy of his study, 'Die byzantinische Stadt'. Mr. P. R. L. Brown advised on the conversion of the thesis into a book.

The Research Board of Leicester University gave a grant towards the preparation of the final text. I owe a debt of gratitude to Professor A. Wasserstein and my colleagues in the Classics Department at Leicester for offering me a congenial and stimulating academic environment.

The two maps were drafted by Mr. T. Garfield. They include information taken from Westermanns Atlas zur Weltgeschichte (Braunschweig, 1965), 40, no. 3; R. Mouterde andA. Poide bard , Le 'Limes' de Chalcis (Paris, Geuthner, 1945), Map I; G. Tchalenko , Villages antiques de la Syrie du Nord (Paris, Geuthner, 1953), vol. 2, Pl. XXXV; vol. 3, 57, fig. 7 (by H. Seyrig). Mr. F. A. Holmes read the proofs. Margaret and Rachel Liebeschuetz performed much arid and arduous work for the completion of the manuscript. All errors and omissions are my own.
