BYZAS is a new series published since 2005 by the Istanbul branch of the German Institute of Archaeology. The first five volumes present the results of international conferences and workshops hosted by the Istanbul branch in 2003 and 2004. BYZAS is an adequate medium for the publication of the results of future meetings, but it is also designed for monographic studies with modern research approaches.
The series is named after Byzas of Megara, mythical founder of the city Byzantion.
