Dr. Kunze will speak on Patara, the principal harbor in ancient Lycia on the south coast of Turkey. Famous for its oracle of Apollo and the birthplace of St. Nicholas, Patara stood as a Greek, Roman, and Byzantine city. Ten years of excavations have yielded much information on its public buildings, Greek and Byzantine city walls, Greek and Roman art found in graves, and Christian churches.
