Remarkable ancient Greek sites that still endure

Heliopolis

A new list for the new year…

Although it is a key contention of ours that the emphasis on the total ruin and complete collapse of cities through history is a misconception worth challenging (the fact is that civilisations tend to be much more resilient than is usually allowed for), here is a catalogue of 25 ancient Greek cities that no longer exist… except for those ones that do… cities such as Marseille and Alexandria etc. continuously occupied for millennia…

Anyway, if nothing else the list certainly does show how extensive the ancient Greek colonisation of the whole Mediterranean (and beyond) was.
