Philadelphia 2017

The Galatas Survey. Socio-Economic and Political Development of a Contested Territory in Central Crete during the Neolithic to Ottoman Periods This volume explores the results of the American archaeological survey (2005-2007) carried out around the area of Galatas in Central Crete, as requested by Georgos Rethemiotakis, the Director of Excavations at Galatas.

LM III mortuary practices in West Crete: the cemeteries of Maroulas and Armenoi at Rethymnon

Studi Micenei 3 (2017): 131-157

The examination of two burial assemblages is not limited to descriptions of data, but also addresses the functional role of the objects, which can lead to more interpretive approaches, based on a theoretical framework. Looking at the evidence of the two cemeteries, one can deduce that there was a specific burial programme, in which there was an accepted way of treating the dead.

Out of date, out of fashion: the change of dress of Aegean figures in the Egyptian 18th dynasty Theban tombs in the light of Aegean Bronze Age costume

Studi Micenei 3 (2017): 105-130

We examine the use of the breechcloth and kilt in the Bronze Age Aegean and argue that the affinity of the Aegean elite of Knossos towards wearing kilts in processions can be dated to LM II. This date corresponds to the change from breechcloth to kilt in the tomb of Menkheperreseneb with the terminus post quem in the 33rd regnal year of Thutmose III.

A lost Mycenaean fresco fragment re-examined

Studi Micenei 3 (2017): 83-104

Possible reconstructions of the fragment are presented, and its iconography is explored in light of current chronologies and known comparanda. It is argued that, while many details of the fragment’s biography remain ambiguous, the potential value of the find as a rare representation of a processing man in a mainland palatial context is substantial.

The Wall Paintings of the West House at Mycenae

Philadelphia

The Wall Paintings of the West House at Mycenae The wall paintings discussed in this volume were originally discovered in 1958 by Niko-laos Verdelis during the excavation of the West House, one of the four buildings, also known as the “Ivory Houses,” south of Grave Circle B, at Mycenae.

Repair, recycle or modify? The response to damage and/or obsolescence in Mycenaean metal vessels during the Prepalatial and Palatial periods and its implications for understanding metal recycling

Studi Micenei 3 (2017): 7-26

Many repairs were apparently linked to the prioritisation of other production factors over the final vessel appearance. Generally vessels of precious metals and lead were not repaired, nor were certain copper-alloy vessel forms. It is suggested that these were typically recycled instead, with different chains of reasoning leading to the same choice.

A Late Bronze Age ship from Liman Tepe with reference to the Late Bronze Age ships from İZMIR / Bademgediği Tepesi and Kos / Seraglio

Oxford Journal of Archaeology 36.1 (2017): 61-70

In this article, a Mycenaean pottery sherd from Liman Tepe is discussed. The piece, which was locally produced, probably belongs to a ring-based crater (FS 281). Comparisons with other, similar sherds suggest that warriors aboard a ship are depicted.
