"This is an important book which should become the standard reference work on Hellenistic colonies in Greece and Asia Minor."—Richard A. Billows, Columbia University
"Professor Cohen provides us with a comprehensive survey of over a half-century of archaeological activity, and an indispensable reference tool for those interested in Hellenistic political history and the urban history of antiquity. The scholarship is superior in every respect."—Stanley Burstein, California State University, Los Angeles
