This is another of Silverberg's stories involving a man from our times (in this case the 1980s) living in the far future, a time of technology as magic, where the great cities of history are reconstructed for the amusement of the small population of Earth. Byzantium, Alexandria, Mohenjo-Daro, New Chicago, complete with legions of temporaries (constructed replica humans with programmed roles to play).
