COMMENTED SUMMARY The Beneficiary, Interbalkan Institute of Public Administration (Greece), was charged to present a representative image of the remains of the Greco-Roman civilization in terms of archaeological sites, monuments and in general any material trace of that period. The period of time examined is six centuries: From 323 BCE approximately, to 3rd c. C.E. The monuments of that time in Greece are numerous. There are excellent examples of city planning, such as Nicopolis, Dion, The Roman Athens, Thessaloniki and Pella. The roman villas are of excellent architecture, functional, with rich mosaic decorations, such as the Roman Houses in Pella, in Philipoi, the Villa of Herodus Atticus in Astros (Peloponnese) and the roman house in Kos. The restored theaters, that are still used today for performances, such as Odeon of Herodus Atticus in Athens, Odeon of Philippi in East Macedonia, the Theater in Maroneia, the famous theater of Epidavrus, the Odeon of Patras (not used), the Theater in Delfi, and others of less importance, testify the long tradition in the theatrical arts.

Stone bridges, like the Patras bridge and aqueducts, witness the development of the engineering, shared in all common world.

The roman agora (forum/fora) is represented in Athens at the same area where the today’s market is found. There are also fora in Thessaloniki, Nicopolis, Maroneia and Kos. The Asklepeia are edifices dedicated to Asklepeios, the philanthropist god, founder of Medicine. The Asclepieio of Kos is connected to the works of one of the most important representatives of medical science, Hippocrates (460-380 BC). Hippocrates established the Medical School of Kos as well as the other Asclipia in different cities. The Asklepeio of Epidavrus is related to the theater that played a role in the therapy.
