Chapter Summary

In the winter of 85/84BC Lucius Cornelius Sulla made important decisions about the organisation of the province, which he announced to the representatives of the cities whom he had summoned to Ephesus. It is often assumed that Ephesus was the capital of the province from 129BC. Generally speaking, there would be no contradiction between such a status and the award of freedom to the city included in Attalus' testament. It may be objected that Sulla could not foresee such a development, and that the scope of his plans for the province of Asia should not be overrated. To an extent this is correct: the first aim of the Sullan resettlement was to ensure that the resources necessary for the Civil War were gathered quickly and effectively.
