Sample page of Chandler’s Data Sheets for Ancient Cities section, which is the main section of both city population values and a description of their origin. The first column indicates the year of the population estimate, the second—the estimate itself (underlined figures are Chandler’s estimates), the third—the derivation of the estimate, and the fourth—the citation information. When interested in a particular city, time period, or population estimate, this detailed information permits a starting point for further in-depth analysis by referring to the citation sources.
