Les techniques de fabrication de la vaisselle de pierre de Myrtos-Pyrgos

Élise Morero Bulletin de Correspondance Hellénique 138.1 (2014): 329-360


The Minoan site of Myrtos-Pyrgos has produced a wide range of Proto- and Neopalarial objects (faience, pottery, stone vessels, sealstones, etc.) that demonstrate a high level of craftsmanship and also the exist¬ence of an elite to consume them. Among the finds, the Protopalatial stone vessels show great skill in production and appear very similar to those of Quartier Mu at Malia. While the repertoire of forms is largely common to the two centres, study of the techniques used reveals particularly close links — which may suggest a regional distribution of techniques in the Cretan workshops of the time. Among the later material, the presence of fragments of Egyptian vessels (and vessels of Egyptian stone) points to likely exchanges with Egypt.
