Abstract In 2009 research extending over three campaigns began on the synagogue of Priene in Turkey and generated new results about its building phases and interior. This building, incorporated in a Hellenistic prostas house in the city’s western residential district, is smaller and less richly equipped than the large synagogue in Sardis. But a comparison of the two buildings, so unalike, shows on the one hand similarities in general structure which are independent of the size, and on the other hand the special status of the synagogue of Sardis.
