Non-lending collection Urban Biographies (room 311)

The temporary non-lending collection is made up of holdings from the University Library Basel and the subject area Ancient History and is run by the research project  Urban Biographies of the Roman and Late Antique Worlds of Ancient History. Its content therefore corresponds to the main research areas of the project: ancient town planning and urbanism as well as Roman and Late Antique Egypt, with a special focus on the cities of Antinoopolis and Heracleopolis (location "Büro 311 Präsenzbibliothek Urban Biographies" in the library catalogue swisscovery Basel).
