La fornace da vasaio TM IB di Haghia Triada. Introduzione

Creta Antica 12 (2011): 127-130.

Lo scavo della fornace di H. Triada fu l'ultima 'fatica' militante di Doro Levi. L'indi­menticato Maestro lavorava già da qualche anno alla pubblicazione definitiva dello scavo di Festòs, con lunghi soggiorni estivi nei magazzini della Missione italiana.

‘Šrdn from the Sea’: The Arrival, Integration, and Acculturation of a ‘Sea People’

Journal of Ancient Egyptian Interconnections 5:1 (March 2013): 14-27.

Despite a broad temporal presence in Egyptian records, the association of the Sherden with another ‘Sea Peoples’ group – the better known and archaeologically-attested Philistines – has led to several assumptions about this people, their culture, and the role they played in the various societies of which they may have been a part.

Per una rilettura «funzionale» dell’ala sud-occidentale del Palazzo di Festòs: il caso dei vani IL-XXVII/XXVIIΙ (Towards a new ‘functional’ interpretation of the south-west wing of the First Palace at Phaistos: the case of rooms IL-XXVII/XXVIII)

Creta Antica 12 (2011): 17-125.

The purpose of this research is to verify, in a preliminary form, a sector of the South West wing of the first palace of Phaistos, excavated by D. Levi during the 1950s. This part of the building, which has yielded a substantial number of finds, has always been highly problematic for the interpretation of data.

Νεοανακτορικά κύπελλα κοινωνίας από το ιερό της Σύμης, Κρήτη

Κρητικά Χρονικά ΛΒ΄ (2012): 11-40.

Ένα από τα πιο ιδιότυπα σχήματα αγγείων της μινωικής εποχής είναι το «κύπελλο κοινωνίας». Με τον όρο αυτό χαρακτηρίζεται ένας τύπος κυπέλλου με βαθύ κωνικό δοχείο και διακρινόμενο, συνήθως κυλινδρικό, πόδι, που προσομοιάζει, όπως πρώτος παρατήρησε ο Α. Evans, προς τα εκκλησιαστικά δισκοπότηρα (chalices).

Disclosed Intellectual Capital Aspects in Creto-Mycenean Palatial Linear B Clay Tablets

in Tsounis, N. (ed.), 2011. Proceedings of the International Conference on Applied Economics 2008: 611-621.

While the Bronze Age Culture in Crete is known as the “Minoan Culture” according to Evans, the same culture in the Greek Mainland is called Helladic, that in the Aegean Islands Cycladic and that in Asia Minor Anatolian Culture. In the present work the main focus is put on those mentioned Minoan, Helladic, Cycladic and Anatolian or Hellenic Bronze Age (HBA) cultures.

East meets West: the Middle Pleistocene site of Rodafnidia on Lesvos, Greece

Antiquity 87:336 (June 2013): Project Gallery.

This paper introduces a new inter-disciplinary and international research project focused on the Palaeolithic site of Rodafnidia on the Greek island of Lesvos, located in the north-eastern Aegean Sea. Rodafnidia, near the village of Lisvori, is less than a kilometre away from the south-western shore of the large Kalloni Gulf.

A European population in Minoan Bronze Age Crete

Nature Communications 4, 14 May 2013

The first advanced Bronze Age civilization of Europe was established by the Minoans about 5,000 years before present. Since Sir Arthur Evans exposed the Minoan civic centre of Knossos, archaeologists have speculated on the origin of the founders of the civilization.

The lowest levels at Dikili Tash, northern Greece: a missing link in the Early Neolithic of Europe

Antiquity 87:335 (March 2013): 30-45.

Tells famously capture the historical sequences of the earliest farmers—but digging them is not easy. With a depth of strata of 17m at Dikili Tash, the earliest occupation was out of reach of a trench.

Modelling long-term social change in the landscape: case studies from Greece

in Georg Kalaitzoglou & Gundula Lüdorf (eds), 2013. PETASOS, Festschrift für Hans Lohmann (Padeborn: Wilhelm Fink & Ferdinand Schöningh): 111-118.

Hans Lohmann has been an immense inspiration for everyone who wishes to reconstruct the ancient landscapes of Greece and Turkey, with his pioneering explorations of rural Attica and the country hinterland of ancient Miletus.

Ο Νικόλαος Πλάτων ως κλασικός αρχαιολόγος και επιγραφολόγος

Ο Μέντωρ 102 (Απρίλιος-Ιούνιος 2012): 27-36.

Συμπληρώνονται φέτος 20 χρόνια από τον θάνατο του Νικολάου Πλάτωνος (1909-1992). Θεώρησα σκόπιμο με την ευκαιρία αυτή, τιμώντας τη μνήμη του, να δημοσιεύσω μία παραλλαγή της ομιλίας που έκανα στο φιλολογικό μνημόσυνο που οργάνωσε παλαιότερα ο Δήμος Ηρακλείου, στην οποία αναφέρθηκα σε μία λιγότερο γνωστή πτυχή της προσφοράς του, αυτή του κλασικού αρχαιολόγου και επιγραφολόγου.

Το στέγαστρο στο Ακρωτήρι

Ο Μέντωρ 102 (Απρίλιος-Ιούνιος 2012): 70-72.

Για την ολοκλήρωση του στεγάστρου του χώρου της προϊστορικής πόλης στο Ακρωτήρι της Σαντορίνης, γίνεται λόγος στην Α΄Τακτική Συνέλευση του 2012 που δημοσιεύεται στο τεύχος τούτο, καθώς και στο Έργον 2011, 36-38 με ωραίες εικόνες. Λόγος έχει γίνει και κατά τα προηγούμενα έτη.

Minoische Lustralbassins

Boreas 34 (2011): 1-102.

Die sog. minoischen Lustralbassins sind in der ägäischen Bronzezeit nahezu ausschließlich im minoischen Kreta be­kannt. Einzig auf der Insel Thera, die bekanntermaßen stark minoisch geprägt war, wurde ein weiterer Raum dieser Art entdeckt. Im mykenischen Griechenland findet sich der Bautypus der Lustralbassins hingegen nirgendwo.

Bronze Age Greece

in Fibiger Bang, P. & Scheidel, W. (eds), 2013. The Oxford Handbook of the State in the Ancient Near east and Mediterranean, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 235-258.

There are two episodes of state formation in the prehistoric Aegean, one at the beginning, the other in the middle of the second millennium BCE. The first states are associated with the appearance of complex structures conventionally called "palaces" on the island of Crete shortly after 2000 BCE (the MM IB phase);
