Mariana Egri Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"..the presence of comprehensive catalogues of artefacts offers reliable information for further analyses on various related subjects, thus being very useful for interested specialists.... In summary the monograph of the NGS sector of the Lower City of Olbia is remarkable work, a quite comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of a difficult and less published site, which will greatly contribute to the wider discussion concerning the evolution of the Greek colonial presence on the Black Sea shores. The outstanding quantity of various finds brought social and economic aspects in this region and beyond."
