The Alatzomouri Rock Shelter: Defining EM III in Eastern Crete
V. Apostolakou, P.P. Betancourt, T.M. Brogan Aegean Archaeology 9, 2007-2008 : 35-48.
A small cave filled with pottery and other Minoan artifacts was discovered by road construction near Pacheia Ammos. The small site, excavated by the 24th Ephorate under the direction of Stavroula Apostolakou, yielded a large assemblage of pottery. The assemblage is of great interest for the stylistic development of East Cretan White-on-Dark Ware because it comes from an early stage in the development when the complicated curvilinear motifs of this style had not yet appeared. The deposit can be assigned to EM III. It contains both fine and coarse ceramic pieces, including painted and unpainted vessels.
