There are books in which everything written about a well-known city or a country implies the feeling of a luxuriant mythology or a suppressed insufficiency, the feeling that the thing shared is slighty hyperbolized and unproved, and the thing supposed by the contemporaires, is little short of hiding among the manuscript of the historians.
The Philippopolis album aims to popularize not only the rich architectural heritage of ancient Plovdiv but also to recreate the real aspect of the city, just what it looked like about two thousand years ago.
The restoration of the city, its most important public and residential buildings, the fortification system and the engineering facilities, though somehow presumable, is based on an adequate archaeological documentation, as some literature and studies about the architecture of Rome and the Roman provinces, have been used.
