Hellenistic Pottery : The Fine Wares Hardback
Part of the Corinth series
Using newly excavated deposits from the Panayia Field, this volume offers a substantial revision to the absolute chronology of Corinthian Hellenistic pottery as established in Corinth VII.3 by G.
Roger Edwards (1975). This new research, based on quantitative analysis of over 80 deposits, demonstrates that the date range for most fine-ware shapes should be lowered by 50-100 years from Edwards' chronology.
This allows the author to conclude, contrary to previous assumptions, that local ceramic production continued in Corinth after the destruction of the city in 146 B.C.
This volume is a long-awaited and much-needed addition to the Corinth series because the new "Panayia Field chronology" firmly dates Corinthian Hellenistic pottery.
The significance of this work is not limited to ancient Corinth, but will be relevant for scholars studying other local pottery industries in the Peloponnese and beyond.
