My name is Adrian S. Erben, I am a german ancient historian and currently employed as a research fellow at the Chair of Ancient History at Bamberg University.

I am particularly interested in the ordering of communities from a local perspective and non-imperial actors. Geographically, I have specialised on the Roman Orient (especially Syria).

In my dissertation, I pursue the question of what role local groups played in ensuring the stability of the local order arrangement in the ancient metropolis of Antioch on the Orontes.
