Thessaloniki is the second largest city in Greece and has been for many centuries an important urban center of the Roman and then the Byzantine Empire. The following pictures are taken from this fantastic website (link) about the digital reconstruction of the Palace of Emperor Galerius and the nearby region as it is believed to have looked between 3rd-7th Century AD based on archeological evidence.
