Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the results of the excavations of two residential complexes in the town of Sagalassos, including a palatial mansion to the north of the Roman Baths and a late antique house/shop encroaching upon the east portico of the lower agora. These housing complexes provide evidence for the living conditions of both the upper and middle classes in Late Antiquity. In the case of the palatial mansion, one is mostly dealing either with deposits of broken items, left behind during the final abandonment of a room, or with rubbish associated with the gradual abandonment of the structures. Such deposits only contain a fraction of the material present during the occupation of the structures, but provided that an interdisciplinary study of the evidence is undertaken, they can still allow the reconstruction of an assemblage resembling the original content of the room.

Keywords: late antique residential complexes; lower agora; palatial mansion; Roman Baths; Sagalassos
