This article reviews the nature of fora and agorai during the late 3rd–5th c. A.D., and investigates the material appearance and everyday functions of these spaces. It revises the thesis of T. Potter’s Towns in Late Antiquity, through drawing upon a wider range of archaeological evidence and literary sources, which provide vivid details about everyday activities. It is argued that in many cities, especially in the East, fora/agorai were still monumental public squares with familiar public functions, and that the definitive eclipse of civic plazas, departing from earlier models of Mediterranean urbanism, comes later than has often been thought, in the 6th and 7th c.
