A joint publication of the Gennadius Library and the Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation, Ottoman Athens is the first volume to focus on the Ottoman presence in Athens. This collection of 12 essays explores the architecture, antiquities, cartography, and documentary sources from the period, shedding light on little-studied material and illuminating daily life in Greece’s most famous city during Ottoman rule. Topics include the Parthenon mosque; the neighborhood of Karykes and the fountain of the Exechoron; the restoration of the Benizelos Mansion; Ottoman-period baths in Athens; topographic maps of Athens during the Ottoman period; the Vienna Anonymous and the Bassano drawing; Ottoman-period pottery found in the Athenian Agora; and travelers' accounts of the hammams of Athens.
