Greek Colony[edit]

Theres no mention of Arles being originally a Greek colony? I may do some research and post it here before editing the main page, if there are no objections.

Roman Era[edit]

Regarding two of the Roman structures in Arles: the one in this photo is a full circle, whereas the other (depicted in the pillar ruins image) is only semi-circular. I was under the impression that the term 'amphitheatre' refers to a venue that is not a full circle, though it looks like I'm wrong on that. Either way, there should be some distinction between this image and this one -- calling them both by the same term is misleading, as they are completely separate structures in different locations.

Also, to the submitter of the first image -- JPG usually works best for photos, and PNG for everything else. Probably doesn't make much difference in this case, but it's something to keep in mind. --Patik 17:17, Aug 2, 2004 (UTC)

This photo is the Roman amphitheater, which is a circular structure. This one is the Roman theater, which is semi-circular. olivier 19:57, Nov 20, 2004 (UTC)

Alignment issues[edit]

There are alignment issues with this article - The first table (on the right) is above the text, and this table should be beside the text. --EunuchOmerta 15:39, 17 May 2006 (UTC)EunuchOmerta

Pronunciation[edit]

How do you pronounce "Arles"? Is it "AR-ehlls" or "AR-less" or what? AThousandYoung 08:41, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

It's "AR-ehll." Gunslinger 04:42, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

Arles on the ranking list[edit]

Is there a referance to whether or not Arles is the best Commune in France to live in? If not, is it on the top one percent? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.164.222.87 (talk) 21:13, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Ancient History[edit]

Several recent edits by anonymous Greek IPs have changed the sense of the History section by removing any references to the Greeks. I've reverted twice and don't want to dragged in to a war. This is not really my subject but I've added a new section for pre-Roman history, and used the word Phoenician rather than Greek. It's very basic. Can anyone more experienced help? There's a good separate article on the history of Arles in the French wiki. Mcewan (talk) 11:22, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Ancient Greek History[edit]

I'm not sure why any Greek would not want that information made available? As long as the sources are cited and it's well written go for it. I posted at the top of the page about this very issue before I realised that your contributions had been edited out. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.25.109.197 (talk) 12:22, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Big big gap in the history section[edit]

We have nothing from the 1st to the 8th century!!!! --Againme (talk) 03:51, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
