Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
Study of the relief pottery from the 4th century BC to the 5th century AD found on the territory inhabited in Iron Age and Roman Periods by the Liburni, on today's north-central coastal area of Croatia. For the first time the author analyses a special 'Hellenistic' group of pottery for which there is evidence that it was produced in Liburnia and in Dalmatia in the 2nd and 1st centuries BC. The use of such pottery in funerary rites by the Iron Age Liburnian population is documented on cemeteries belongingto authochtonous hill-forts. Other pottery examined and illustrated are imports of Arretine , North Italian and Gaulish sigillata, relief pottery from Cnidian, Corinthian, African and Asia Minor workshops.
