Abstract

The archaeology world has been in a trend of exploring the rural landscapes often inseparable from the periphery of urban localities. The deme of Phoinix, lying in the countryside of the Bozburun Peninsula (in SW Turkey) is a quasi-coastal rural habitat where the way of implantation of the settlement components quite conceals the typical aspects of a chora. This paper aims to reconstruct the settlement pattern and explain the change process of the long unattended deme of Phoinix as well as the basic motives behind its spatial organization during the Classical and Hellenistic periods.
