This book presents the ceramic vessels from the Late Minoan (LM) II-III settlement at Mochlos and its cemetery at Limenaria, which lies opposite the settlement a short distance to the south. Mochlos IIB is the second of three volumes in the Mochlos Publication Series concerned with the LM II-III settlement and cemetery. The current volume details the ceramic vessels in three main chapters, two appendices, two concordances, tables, figures and plates.

Chapter 1 focuses on the fabric types found at Mochlos. It presents a petrographic examination of a selected sample of the pottery from both the settlement and the cemetery. Chapter 2 contains a typological examination and catalog of the ceramic vessels arranged by shape. Chapter 3 provides an analysis of the character and relative chronology of the pottery assemblage as a whole. Appendix A presents the technical petrographic descriptions for the fabrics discussed in Chapter 1. Appendix B is a catalog and discussion of the earlier Minoan and later, Orientalizing pottery found in LM II-III contexts.
