Attic Red-Figure Pottery VI-IV C. B.C From Menekşe Çatağı At Propontis.
Melekshe Catagi situated near Tekirdag at the northern coast of the Marmara Sea (fig.1). A site
was excavated in 1993-2007. Total number of Red-figure pottery is relatively few as compared with other pottery
groups from the settlement. By the form the vessels are divided to table ware and perfume containers (figs. 2–4). All
the vessels are Attic with some variability in colors and density characteristics of clay surfaces, within the limits of
the characteristics for typical products of the center. The collection covers the chronological period from the 2 nd half
of the VI to the 1 st half of IV B.C.E. The highest volume of imports, apparently accounted for the Vth C.B.E. It
reflects the overall dynamics of import Attic painted pottery in the region.
