Recent excavations in the Northern Aegean and its periphery have yielded large amounts of Classical pottery, both local and imported. The study of local pottery contributes to ongoing research on regional workshops and the influences they received from other areas, while the examination of imported wares includes not only painted vases, among which Attic are the most prominent, but also other categories of plain pottery, e.g., trade amphoras. Such a multi-faceted approach offers the opportunity to explore questions related to commerce and the longevity and diffusion of vases within the Northern Aegean. It also aims to highlight more specific topics, such as local imitations of painted and black glaze pottery and the impact of metalworks on the ceramic production. Lastly, it provokes a discussion on issues on iconography, techniques, ceramic workshops, shapes and function of vases. Continuing the tradition of the archaeological meeting on Archaic Pottery of the Northern Aegean and its Periphery (May 19-22, 2011), the Department of Archaeology of the School of History and Archaeology at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, along with the Department of Language, Literature and Culture of the Black Sea Countries at the Democritus University of Thrace and the Scientific Committee of the first conference are organizing a new meeting in order to discuss and further investigate the topics described above.

Researchers working on any aspect of Classical pottery from the Northern Aegean and its periphery are welcome to participate in this meeting, which will be held from May 17-20, 2017 in Thessaloniki. To register, please send the attached form and a short abstract of 150-200 words to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by May 31, 2016.
