Summary

Addressing topics of production and distribution, iconography, regional studies, and museum collections, this volume sheds new and important light on perspectives in the fields of ancient pottery studies. The articles, substantial and well-illustrated, cover a wide span of time from the Geometric period and into the Roman period, including new results and material from excavations as well as new methodological approaches. The range of vessels and their varieties discussed include Campana A pottery from the southern Levant and the Black Sea areas; Oinotrian-Euboian pottery in a sanctuary context in Timpone della Motta near Sybaris in the Middle to Late Geometric periods; Early Proto Corinthian aryballos in the western Mediterranean; Greek imported and local pottery from the earliest times in Crotone's history; iconographic history of the myth of Iphigenia from Athens to southern Italian vase-painting; small terracotta figurines from eloponnesian sanctuaries; anthropomorphic and zoomorphic figures on Etruscan impasto vessels; Cypro-Arcaic pottery; and objects red-gloss relief decorated sherds and Geometric pottery housed in Danish museum collections.
