Sample text

Production of Arta, while a few wares were attributed to Italian workshops of the 14th-16th c. (two pieces of ‘Protomaiolica or Archaic Maiolica’, a sgraffito bowl of the second half of the 15th c. from Venice and some 15th-16th - century Maiolica). More recently, some more pottery from Arta was published (Vavylopoulou-Charitonidou 1994), divided into painted, sgraffito, monochrome and unglazed wares. Some local characteristics were distinguished, such as a green band painted on the rim of bowls and defined by incised lines.

Some 13th-14th– century pottery is also included in the material from the excavations at Ayios Nikolas Tranos, such as ‘Marbled Ware’ and various sgraffito wares (Evgenidou 1982). Characteristic products of Thessaloniki are some sgraffito bowls decorated with birds, rosettes or little spirals in square compartments. The exterior of bowls is often decorated with little arcs painted with slip (Papanikola-Bakirtzis 1999, 188-221). , while it continued in the 15th-16th c. (Papanikola-Bakirtzis 2003, 53-57).

The excavations of the Cyprus Department of Antiquities, the British School at Athens and the Dumbarton Oaks at the castle of Saranda Kolones near Paphos have provided important information on the glazed pottery of the Middle Byzantine period and the 13th c. 18 (Megaw 1971; 1972; 1982; 1984; Rosser 1985). It is particularly important that the destruction of the castle from the earthquake of 1222 provides a terminus ante quem for the dating of its pottery1. , and proposed an Aegean provenance of the ware (Megaw 1975).
