Between October 26 and 29, 2015, the international conference “Ionians in the West and East”, directed by professor Gocha R. Tsetskhladze, was held at the Empuries headquarters of the Museu d’Arqueologia de Catalunya, in the ancient colony Greek of Emporion (l’Escala, Girona, Catalonia, Spain). Seven years later, the proceedings of this conference have been published in issue 27 of the Colloquia Antiqua series by Peeters Publishers. The volume consists of 34 articles of great interest on different aspects of the Ionian colonization and trade in the western end of the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea. Unfortunately, the publication of this book coincided with the death, on September 11, of professor Gocha R. Tsetskhladze, at the age of 59 years. Our sincerest condolences to his family and friends.
