Athenian Vases for whom?: A New Workshop of the Late 4th Century in the Athenian Kerameikos

Abstract : In 2010, the author had the opportunity to examine material found in a small rescue excavation in the area of the Demos Kerameis in 1966. More than 100 vases and thousands of fragments had been collected at that time from a sealed pit of a potter’s workshop. A certain range of typical defects is visible which leads to the conclusion that all the vases had been discarded after accidents during the production process. Their date is clearly limited to the end of the 4th century, therefore all the vases should come from one or maybe two collapsed kilns. Three dominant types of pottery were produced for three different groups of customers: Athenian officials, normal citizens and for export.
