SULLE SPONDE DEL TIGRI. SUGGESTIONI DALLE COLLEZIONI ARCHEOLOGICHE DEL MAO: SELEUCIA E COCHE

CULTURE & TRADITION
-
In the long centuries between the endeavours of Alexander the Great and the advent of Islam, the boundaries of the known world expanded as never before. In that world cities were born as we conceive them today, places of interconnection within a capillary network that united the Mediterranean to China.
In one of the most neuralgic points of this global network - central Mesopotamia - capitals were founded of unmatched importance and size: the first was Seleucia on the Tigris, at the end of the 4th century BC, followed by the mythical Ctesiphon, later integrated in the 3rd century AD with the round city of Coche. Starting in 1964, the excavations of the Archaeological Research and Excavations Centre of Torino brought to light residential structures and artifacts of various kinds, such as clay sealing of documents, coins, glasses, ceramics and terracotta.
