Palmira - ܬܕܡܘܪܬܐ
Door City of the Roman Empire to the East
The basis of this research project was the documentary, bibliographic and photographic survey with visits to the excavations in the field, as well the Palmyra Museum and the last visit to the Damascus Archaeological Museum in 2002. The justification for choosing this city, besides the strategic position of control of the peripheral territories of the Roman Empire far from the capital, Rome, is also evidenced by the strong presence of trading points that promoted part of the Empire’s wealth through trade with other Central Asian countries, India, China and all territories in around the Persian Gulf. The architecture of the city’s reconstruction and the archaeological remains of the Roman era reveal the grandeur and importance Palmira assumed when it was declared the City of the Roman Empire.
