Leon Battista Borsano is an ancient historian and a Greek epigraphist. His main interests within Hellenistic history are the economic and cultural transformations of Asia Minor societies between the end of the Persian Empire and Roman provincialisation. He is currently studying the city of Cyzicus and its surroundings in order to provide an up-to-date historical representation of this neglected region.
