Späthellenistische und frühkaiserzeitliche Keramik aus Priene
Provenance and production of late Hellenistic and early Imperial pottery from Priene at the Asia Minor West coast are analysed on the basis of two complexes, one from the South stoa at the Athena sanctuary and the other from the Insula E5 in the northwest living quarter. Both pottery assemblages are presented in their extensive and representative range of fabrics and forms including all fine and coarse pottery. They can be regarded as closed deposits and therefore as important reference point for pottery research in Asia Minor. Special focus lies on scientific analyses (WD-XRF), which ensure the origin of regional as well as supraregional imports and for the first time testify to a local pottery production at Priene.
