CERAMIC ASSEMBLAGES AND MATERIAL CONNECTIONS IN LATE ROMAN NORTH-WESTERN CYPRUS AND BEYOND

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Based on the mapping of ceramic distribution patterns, the article analyses the dynamics of the settlement pattern of the Late Roman hinterland of the Skouriotissa copper mine, the largest in Cyprus, and its relationship to the nearest city Soli. The article contextualises the hinterland in relation to the copper producing landscapes of Cyprus to the east and south, and supra-regionally in relation to the cities on the south coast of Asia Minor as well as chronologically and geographically in relation to the Early Roman ceramic zones defined by John Lund (2015). Although the regional coherence of the Hellenistic to Early Roman period is to some extend intact in the Late Roman period, the analysis suggests that the Late Roman hinterland of Skouriotissa demonstrates some organisational peculiarities for which an explanation is sought in the extraordinary resources of the region.
