About this item

The excavations of the American School of Classical Studies at the Athenian Agora, on the Pnyx hill, and on the north slope of the Acropolis, have yielded 721 stamped amphora fragments from the island of Thasos. The present study represents a detailed publication of this collection, accumulated from 1930 to 2012. The book covers four main topics: the Thasian system of stamping ceramic products; a study of the hands of the engravers who made the dies for stamping the amphorae and rooftiles; the chronology of the officials mentioned on the stamps; and the dynamics of trade with Thasian amphorae in Athens.
