Overview

Although the treasury of King Croesus held great quantities of gold and silver plate, the Lydians clearly loved fine ceramic wares imported from Greece. This preference was entirely appropriate for the capital of the expansive Lydian Kingdom, which occupied a pivotal position between the city states of the Greeks and the gigantic empire of the Persians. The importation of Greek pottery corresponds to the visits from poets, philosophers, and politicians mentioned by the historian Herodotus.

This collaborative work consists of three generously illustrated sections presenting the ceramic finds excavated at Sardis, but produced in the mainland Greek centers of Corinth, Athens, and Sparta. Judith Snyder Schaeffer analyzes the Corinthian imports, Nancy H. Ramage the Attic, and Crawford H. Greenewalt, Jr., the Lakonian. Their study of this material from the Harvard-Cornell excavations at Sardis offers new evidence of the taste for specific Greek wares and shapes in Anatolia before the time of Alexander the Great.

Editorial Reviews

Bryn Mawr Classical Review

This volume, the tenth in the monograph series Archaeological Exploration of Sardis, is the first to be devoted exclusively to pottery from the site...[It presents] some of the most easily identified and most prominent classes of Greek pottery of the Archaic period found in Sardis: the Corinthian, Attic and Lakonian...The volume provides as up-to-date an overview of these relevant classes of pottery as possible...The plates, 66 in all, many combining line-drawings with photographs, are of good quality and the volume itself is well edited and handsomely produced. The volume will quickly find its place as an important reference tool in any archaeological library.
— John K. Papadopoulos

American Journal of Archaeology

The prestigious series of monographs on the results of the Harvard-Cornell excavations at Sardis, nine volumes of which have already appeared, is now enriched by the publication of a tenth, devoted to the imported Corinthian, Attic, and Lakonian pottery. Written by three scholars whose prose styles are refreshingly different, yet compatible, this volume catalogues finds from more than 30 years of excavation...This book is a pleasure to read and use. It is logically organized and written with clarity and insight. The catalogue entries are both concise and complete, with up-to-date references. A useful concordance of finds by inventory number and a comprehensive index accompany the text. The plates include plans of the site of Sardis and photographs, often accompanied by profile drawings, of the majority of the catalogued items. The overall quality of the illustrations is excellent...This volume makes a significant contribution to our knowledge of the nature and distribution of imported mainland Greek pottery in western Anatolia. It should prove a valuable tool for vase specialists, as well as for those interested in ancient Mediterranean trade patterns and the chronological application of stratified pottery. We eagerly await further monographs on the pottery from Sardis.
