Methodology And Organization Of The Catalogue

The excavations in the Demeter Sanctuary produced a great amount of pottery when the thousands of terracotta figurines are added, the quantity is astonishing. The 1964 1965 season alone produced 1,080 baskets of sherds. Most of this pottery is small, votive in nature, rather simply decorated, or completely plain, thus similar to material found in other sanctuaries of Demeter.28 In addition, there is material used in the dining rooms for cooking and eating there are also some costlier works, intended as more expensive offerings. A few types must have had cult functions. But it is above all the volume of pottery that impresses one, and what that volume may mean. A large population in Corinth Use of the Sanctuary by non-Corinthian visitors Several rituals during the year with visitors offering several vessels on each occasion Use of vessels only once with immediate discarding of them Dining rooms functioning not just for cult use but also for tribal or civic associations These are...

Settlement contexts

Room 3 was divided up into two parts (3 and 3W), but had originally been one room. In its advanced phase, the eastern part of room 3 seems to have served as a storage room. On the upper floor, in the centre of the room, two deposits of grain have been discovered,30 as well as a group of ten spindle whorls. Near the eastern wall, a LH IIIB narrow-necked jug (cat. no. 33) was found, together with a serpentine square seal, a terra-cotta wall bracket, slag and stone tools. Room 3W has been interpreted as habitation space, on the basis of a large quantity of domestic pottery (Fig. 12.3), some stone implements and a wall bracket. Associated with these domestic items were two LH IIIB-LH IIIC narrow-necked jugs (cat. nos. 34, 35), a deep bowl (cat. no. 22) and a carinated cup, probably of Cypriot manufacture, which has been assigned to LH IIIC (cat. no. 8) (Fig. 12.1). In its earlier phase, the large room 3 possessed a wooden structure, as is indicated by two post holes. The inventory on the...

Social groups associated with the mycenaean pottery

Among the settlements which have produced smaller amounts of Mycenaean pottery than the urban coastal centres, Pyla-Kokkinokremos (site no. 58) is one that shows a wide distribution of this material. In area II at this site, Mycenaean vessels were found in three of the four structures.63 Moreover, within these buildings the Mycenaean pots were widely distributed on the floors of various rooms and were interspersed with Cypriot pottery and domestic objects such as terra-cotta wall brackets, stone tools and some metal objects. The Aegean pottery found in LC II levels at Toumba tou Skourou (site no. 105) came from various rooms in Houses B and C and from a few pits in these houses.64 This pottery was interspersed with objects of Cypriot manufacture and appears to have been an integral part of the inventory of these buildings, which were related to large-scale production of pottery. At the site of Kalopsidha (site no. 57) no buildings were found intact, but in undisturbed levels in trench...

Differentiation within the repertoire of mycenaean pottery

The final class of Mycenaean pottery to be considered are terra-cotta figurines. According to the figures provided by Leonard, Mycenaean female figurines have been found at eighteen sites in the Levant.116 If bovine figurines and types such as chariots are included, the number of sites with Mycenaean figurines grows to twenty-two.117 The find places of Mycenaean figurines are widely distributed, including inland sites such as Kamid el-Loz (site no. 168) and 'Ain Shems (site no. 227). In a quantitative sense, however, the distribution shows a marked concentration at Ugarit nineteen female figurines (31.6 of the total) and forty-five of bovine and other type (68 of the total) have been found at Ras Shamra and Minet el-Beida. At Ugarit, these idols did not appear to have been restricted in any spatial or contextual sense. The case of the area with pits in Minet el-Beida, where a large quantity of such figurines were found together indicates that these objects could be endowed with some...

Mycenaean repertoire

Mycenaean vessels which can be interpreted as of ceremonial types are almost absent in the central Mediterranean. Only in room A at the Nuraghe Antigori (site no. 348) has a LH IIIB conical rhyton been discovered.60 Three Mycenaean terra-cotta figurines have been found in the central Mediterranean one at Lipari and two more female Psi-type figurines were discovered at Scoglio del Tonno (site no. 314).61 Apparently, these kind of specialised ceramics occurred only at sites with abundant Mycenaean imports.

Roman Pottery Glossary

MC - Miscellaneous Clay Objects P - Pottery S - Sculpture S S - Stamps and Seals ST - Stone T - Terracotta W - Wood Lamps In descriptions of Greek lamps, the type classifications established by Howland (Howland, Lamps) are followed. The Corinth lamp types of Broneer's publication (Broneer, Lamps) are referred to occasionally but the Corinthian type distinctions are often not strictly applicable to the lamps found in Athens. The lamps of Roman date from the Agora will be published by Miss Judith Perlzweig (Perlzweig, Lamps) without division into specifically numbered types the plastic lamps will be treated by Miss Claireve Grandjouan in the same volume (Perlzweig-Grandjouan, Lamps). Cross references are provided in the ensuing catalogue for each lamp published by Howland, Perlzweig, or Grandjouan. For Howland the appropriate catalogue number is given. For Perlzweig and Grandjouan reference is by author's name only to the volume where cross reference may be found by consulting the...

Group J

Group J constitutes the lower (period of use) filling of a well (Deposit C 12 1) located on Kolonos Agoraios to the south of the Hephaisteion. Of the building with which the well was associated nothing remains, for most of this area had been denuded long before the start of the excavation. The well had a diameter of 1.07 m. and a total depth of 21.05 m. from the preserved rock surface it was cut through hard rock and no terracotta tiles were used for lining the shaft.1 The lower filling, from 16.00 m. to bottom, appears to have accumulated while the well was in use and is characterized by numerous water jars and amphorae re-used as water jars. The terminus post quern for this group is indicated by the dipinto on J 5, which was found in Layer I this dipinto records as date the fourteenth year of the reign of the emperor Hadrian (137 138).2 This storage amphora may have been kept in the wine cellar for several years before being decanted,3 and after being emptied of its original...

Group M

This group constitutes the filling of Deposit M 17 1 (see PL 76 for grid plan of the excavated area), a well which in its penultimate phases served a building lying to the south of the east-west road which bordered the Agora on the south.1 This building is characterized at its southern end by an apse of heavy construction with three niches in its rear wall. The well lies approximately 21.50 m. due north of the rear wall of the apse, within the southern of a pair of rooms whose western walls have been destroyed. The well was lined with terracotta tiles from top to bottom and reached a depth of 35.30 m.2 The location of the mean water level of ancient times, which of course varied with the season and the annual rainfall, can be estimated to have been at least above the 21.00 m. line, since the well was still in use in the late 6th century, when the shaft had already been filled up to that level with pottery and other household debris.3

Use And Form

Agia Triada Reconstitution

It is possible, however, that some of the rough stone slabs recovered from the channels (Fig. 20) spanned them, as in the LM III kiln at Stylos (Fig. 23).31 Also, some of the fragmentary coarse terracotta slabs or bats recovered from the kiln (C 10052, C 10073),32 as well as some pithoi (below, 58), basins (54, 55), and large bowls (27), could have temporarily spanned the 0.25 m gaps, with other pottery stacked on top of them. Nevertheless it is curious that no spanning elements were found in situ, if they had been left in place by the potters, especially in the undisturbed area where the plastered upper wall (see above) is preserved intact. Also, since clay imprints were not found on the tops of the channel dividers, any terracotta or stone slabs placed there were apparently not stabilized by clay as were the slabs in the Stylos kiln.
