This book collects the Greek and Latin inscriptions of Kayseri – ancient Caesarea-Mazaca in Cappadocia – and Kayseri Museum, but also the epigraphic texts mentioning the city and its inhabitants attested abroad. It is one of the last works of David French, who entrusted it on 24 January 2017 to Stephen Mitchell. French died on 19 March 2017. On 15 January 2018, during a visit to Catania (Italy), Mitchell suggested to Margherita G. Cassia that they should collaborate in publishing the manuscript after revision and the addition of supplementary new information and bibliography. This scholarly project was abruptly interrupted six years later when Mitchell passed away on 30 January 2024.
Mitchell and Cassia have expanded and updated Abbreviations and Bibliography, enriched the commentary of the inscriptions, inserted in the Catalogue (chapter 2: Catalogue of the Inscriptions of Kayseri and Kayseri Museum) fourteen additional texts, written the historical introduction (chapter 1: Historical Introduction), added the section on Caesareans outside Caesarea (chapter 3: Caesareans outside Caesarea), and revised Concordances, Indices, and Illustrations.
