Archaic and Classical Ceramics of Eleon

Trevor Van Damme, Susan Lupack

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


After a long gap in the ceramic record following the twelfth century BC, ceramic materials dating from the eighth through the fourth century BC are documented in our excavations. This contribution presents for the first time the key deposits of Archaic and Classical material identified on the acropolis of Eleon from 2011 to 2014, including the evidence for the dating of the polygonal wall, the only monumental construction of this period identified so far at the site. Attention is also drawn to the large quantities of votive materials recovered from the ramped entryway and other areas of the site, which appear to attest to one or more cults operating on the acropolis during the sixth through the fourth century BC, if not earlier.
