During the time of Hellenism and of the Empire, the ancient city of Knidos was one of the most important manufacturing centers of fine tableware in the eastern Mediterranean. To date, Cnidian ceramics have only been partially researched. With the help of around 2,000 artefacts, this volume shows the full range of fine ceramics produced in Knidos, including both undecorated mass-produced and painted or relief-decorated luxury tableware. Selected findings form the basis for a comprehensive chronology and typology of fine Cnidian ceramics. More than 90 local vessel types are discussed in detail and the decorated goods and their decorative elements characterized. The work also highlights the long-time evolution of local production and points to the causes of changes in the repertoire. Relations with other centers of production and the relationship between local and imported pottery are of particular interest.
