Sharing images, shaping power in the periphery: The influence of the Mycenaean palatial system in the iconography of the Late Bronze Age Thessaly
Dimitra Rousioti Anodos. Studies of the Ancient World 12/2012 : 233-242
Late Bronze Age Thessaly was considered until recently part of the periphery of the Mycenaean world. However, recent systematic fieldwork and restudy of old archaeological material indicate a complicated relationship of the area with the Mycenaean administrative centers of the southern Greek Mainland. This paper attempts to investigate the role the palatial iconography played in the expression of the established or under formation political, social and economic structures in Late Bronze Age Thessaly with an emphasis on the 14th and 13th century B.C.
