Pottery Summary

Pottery Summary

T-45 yielded a lot of pottery this summer. There were 14, 794 sherds of bulk pottery recovered and at least 24 cataloged finds. Locus 4 had the most cataloged ceramic, with seven finds recovered. Locus 1, 2, 5, 6, 8, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, and 18 had no cataloged finds. Locus 2 only had one find, a fragment of Ionic pottery 20070018 . Locus 3 had two cataloged ceramic finds, a sherd of Ionic black slip 20070076 and an oinochoe handle fragment 20070329 . Locus 4 had 7 cataloged finds, two of which were bucchero, a bucchero Potnia Theron handle fragment 20070101 and a bucchero lug handle 20070123 . Other finds from Locus 4 include a painted oinochoe neck fragment 20070149 , an incised impasto sherd 20070168 , stamped and incised buccheroid 20070205 , an impressed buccheroid base 20070283 , and the rim fragment of a fenestrated vessel 20070301 . The wealth of cataloged finds from Locus 4 is not surprising since Locus 4 also contained the most bulk pottery. Four finds were extracted from Locus 7, two pieces of stamped bucchero 20070300 and 20070273 , an impasto handle fragment 20070201 , and a bucchero Potnia Theron handle fragment 20070173 . Locus 9 had two finds, one stamped impasto 20070198 and one stamped bucchero fragment 20070157 . Locus 10 had one cataloged piece of ceramic, a piece of incised bucchero, 20070293 . Six finds were recovered from Locus 11, only one of which was bucchero, which was roll stamped 20070294 . Locus 11's other finds include two sherds of fenestrated vessels 20070256 and 20070291 , stamped impasto 20070285 and incised impasto 20070207 and a buccheroid sykphos handle 20070206 .

Locus 4 contained the most bulk pottery with 4236 sherds, nearly 30% of the total bulk finds. Locus 3, 7, 9, and 11 also produced large amounts of bulk ceramic, each yielding over 1500 sherds and in the case of Locus 7, over 2300 sherds. Loci 3, 4, 7, 9, and 11 have also held the highest concentrations of other finds; this suggests that these layers were probably associated with residence or production.

Impasto was the most common fabric by far in bulk pottery, constituting 9120 finds and over 60% of the total body of recovered pottery. There were nearly equal numbers of fine impasto and coarseware, each producing just over 2700 finds while there were only 189 bulk bucchero finds in all. The highest concentration by far of bucchero in T-45 was in Locus 7, which yielded 115 out of 189 finds. Locus 11 had the next highest amount, followed by Locus 4 then Locus 9.

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
