The Byzantine and Ottoman Pottery Production of Athens

Pottery excavated in the Athenian Agora: tripod stilts (@ S.Y. Waksman)

A new POMEDOR intern, Lucie Courbe, is currently working in the framework of her MA Thesis with S.Y. Waksman in Lyon's laboratory, on the Byzantine and Ottoman Pottery Production of Athens.
The material under study comes from the American Excavations in the Athenian Agora and will be published by J.A.C. Vroom (Leiden University) and her team. It gave evidence for pottery manufacture in Athens Agora at the Ottoman period. Lucie will characterize this production by chemical analysis and investigate the hypothesis of an earlier one, typologically related to the MBP (Main Middle Byzantine Pottery, see Waksman, Kontogiannis, Skartsis, Vaxevanis 2014) produced in Chalkida.
