Texte intégral

1Lippolis’ contribution is the first entirely dedicated to the new area the Italian archaeological mission at Nisa has begun to investigate in the last years: the south-western sector of the Old City. There the excavations brought to light a series of structure belonging to two different buildings. A large quadrangular building (Western Building) presents one or two rows of rooms built around a central court. In the structure food and goods were stored (oil, wine, flour) and productive activity took place. At least three different phases have been individuated: from the early to the late Parthian period. The building was later reoccupied in the Islamic period. The eastern building, not completely excavated probably had a representative or residential function.
