The Corinthian, Attic, and Lakonian Pottery from Sardis
This collaborative work consists of three generously illustrated sections presenting the ceramic finds excavated at Sardis, but produced in the mainland Greek centers of Corinth, Athens, and Sparta. The authors’ study of this material from the Harvard–Cornell excavations at Sardis offers new evidence of the taste for specific Greek wares and shapes in Anatolia before the time of Alexander the Great.

The book places coins within eastern Mediterranean historical, cultural and economic contexts in order to better understand the monetized economy of Sardis.
