The conference, hosted by the University of Nottingham and sponsored by the Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies, has brought together presenters from around the world who will talk about their research and areas of interest. The topics that are to be presented cover the late Hellenistic, Roman and Late Antique/Byzantine periods on Crete. The theme of the conference is “The Enigma of Late Hellenistic and Roman Crete: Unanswered Questions”.

This is the first conference solely dedicated to the topic of Roman Crete and the gathering offers a unique opportunity to hear and meet with some of the leading experts in these areas.
