Από την εισαγωγή (στα Αγγλικά)
The pottery and figurines from the Mycenaean cemeteries at Kolonaki, Hagia Anna, Ismenion and Elektrae Gates in Thebes were first published by the excavator A. Keramopoullos in the AE 49 (1910) and AD 3 (1917) in association with the chamber tombs and also in context with the other tomb deposits. These early studies provide information on the condition in which the tombs and their context were discovered and also give detailed information of the locus of the burial deposits. In some cases, comparisons are drawn with materials from other Mycenaean sites and, in general, there is an occasional discussion of the antiquity or the lateness of the shapes and decorative themes. Observations on burial practices are frequently made. The pottery from these cemeteries was used by A. Furumark in his study of the Mycenaean pottery classification, and since then it has entered the studies of Mycenaean pottery as comparative material.
In recent years, Mycenaean Boeotia is undergoing a renaissance with the rescue excavation in Thebes carried out by the Archaeological Service, the systematic excavations at Gla undertaken by the Archaeological Society at Athens and the publication of old collections from Boeotian Mycenaean levels. The time was ripe for a re-examination of the pottery and the figurines from the Keramopoullos excavations.
