This publication documents this pottery in light of the discoveries at Tell el-Dabca and examines the assemblage in the context of the circulation of Cypriot pottery in the Levant. The spectrum of Cypriot wares includes fine examples of the White Painted tradition (eg White Painted Pendent Line Style, Cross Line Style and WP V) as well as Red on Black, Plain Ware and Cypriot Bichrome.
This book catalogues the full repertoire of Cypriot wares and comparative material from over 40 sites in the Levant, presenting a new perspective on the circulation of Cypriot pottery in the Middle and Late Bronze Ages. It also addresses the wider implications of the use of pottery in establishing chronological frameworks and problems which arise in adhering to the traditional classification systems devised for Cypriot pottery.
