 Project objective

Ancient Nikomedia, Emperor Diocletian’s administrative capital of the Roman Empire, now lies below the modern industrial city of Ä°zmit in Turkey. Until recently very little has been known of its urban landscape, although it was famous from literary descriptions. However, recent salvage excavations have revealed polychromic reliefs and statues of a monumental imperial cult complex from ÇukurbaÄŸ district of modern Ä°zmit. The complex dates from Tetrarchy, when Diocletian ended the 3rd century crisis through several reforms including the rule of four emperors. The newly discovered reliefs include 75 monumental panels, the only surviving state reliefs with extensively preserved ancient paint, that bear imperial, historical, and mythological scenes. These illuminate civic life of the ancient metropolis under Diocletian’s new administration and provide crucial evidence for the little-known art of this period. Working as the director of ÇukurbaÄŸ Archaeological Project since 2015, I have been conducting multidisciplinary scientific research on these new finds. This fellowship will enhance this research and introduce and analyse this unique discovery, the only known example of a Tetrarchic complex from Asia Minor, through an authoritative scholarly monograph.
