Upholding the Monoepiscopate: One City, One Bishop

What powers does a bishop have that a presbyter doesn't, and why should the bishop have those powers instead of the presbyter? What about scale? (Or "subsidiarity"?) Does unity of Christians in a geographical area require the monoepiscopacy, or can it be achieved through synodality with a limited primacy for one?
