Description

Al Mina, at the mouth of the Orontes, some 75 km SW of Chatal Hüyük, has long dominated Greek-Levantine discussions in the Geometric Period (c. 1000-700 BC); the site was the first to reveal an abundance of Greek pottery generally, and still is the findspot of the greatest quantity of Greek Geometric pottery in the Levant – about 1500 sherds. In this volume, the author undertakes an analysis and review of this ‘Greek emporion’, taking as her main topics for discussion – Al Mina as a ‘port of trade’, the evidence for Greek residence on the site, Greek geometric pottery in the Levant, and Geometric pottery in Greek-Levantine trade.
