Susana Teresa Basílico


In this work the author analyzes the imported pottery at Tell el -Ghaba (N. Sinai) in its contextual relationshA, focusing on the different styles, morphology and pastes, to further conduct a comparative study with pottery coming from other archaeological contexts from settlements in the Delta, North Sinai and the Eastern Mediterranean regions during the Saite period, with the aim of knowing about the interrelations existing between Tell el-Ghaba and the mentioned areas.

‘Each chapter contains extensive references to both older sources and up-to-date material from the recent excavations, enabling the reader to seek further information…[Basílico’s] book is a valuable fresh contribution to research on the North Sinai/Eastern Delta. Through the abundant pottery finds, more exactly imports, and their meticulous analysis, it offers a well-informed insight into one particular frontier outpost of Saite Egypt – Tell el-Ghaba.’
