Modern Description: The Forum, lying at the heart of the Roman City was the commercial and administrative center of the city. Its orientation conforms to the surviving Classical and Hellenistic buildings, such as the South Stoa, the Southeast Building and the Temple of Apollo, which were refurbished for use in the Roman Period. The entire area, almost 200 m. long and 100 m. wide, was paved with slabs made of hard Jurassic limestone. It was divided into upper (south) and lower (north) levels by the Central Shops which flanked the “Rostra” or “Bema”. In Late Antiquity the two levels were united by a broad series of steps which replaced the shops. The buildings around the Forum were largely administrative and religious. They include three large civil basilicas, rows of shops, temples and offices.
