In this episode, we delve into the fascinating historical context of the Decapolis cities, a league of ten Hellenistic-Roman cities in the eastern part of the Roman Empire. These cities played a pivotal role in the ancient world and had a unique cultural and political significance. The Decapolis cities were strategically located in the crossroads of trade routes, fostering a rich tapestry of cultural exchange. We explore their origins, which can be traced back to the 4th century BCE, and their subsequent incorporation into the Roman Empire. Throughout the episode, we discuss the diverse characteristics of these cities, from the grandeur of Jerash to the maritime importance of Scythopolis. Join us as we uncover the historical backdrop of the Decapolis cities and gain insights into the complex tapestry of the ancient world.
