The Glanics traded with the Greeks, probably via Marseille, during the 6th and 5th centuries BC, bringing prosperity and resulting in a sizeable town here. Building during this first period (called Glanum-I) had a Hellenistic influence, using the technique of "bonding": using large carved stone blocks set together perfectly without mortar
During the late 2nd century BC, Roman conquest of the region brought roads through the area, with a major crossroad at Glanum. This brought a second phase of construction (Glanum-II), with the Roman style and buildings made of bonding irregular stones.
You can see the difference in architectural styles in this image with Glanum-I in the background and Glanum-II in the foreground.
