Doura Europos

Doura Europos is located near the village of Salhiy, 40 km from Deir Ezzor. It was founded in 303 BC by the Seleucids on the intersection of an east-west trade route along the Euphrates.


The new city, commemorating the birth place of Alexander's successor Seleucus I Nicator, was controlling the river crossing on the route between his newly founded cities of Antioch and Seleucia on the Tigris.


It is rebuilding as a great city built after the Hippodamian model, with rectangular blocks defined by cross-streets ranged round a large central agora. It was formally laid out in the 2nd century BC.
