KOMMOS - 2010
Type of Operation
American School of Classical Studies at Athens
Kommos. J.W. Shaw (ASCSA/Toronto) reports. Analytical work on LBA pottery reveals that the main source of Mycenaean imports was the Argolid, and of Cypriot, the Limassol area. The intensity of these and other international contacts in the Aegean and surrounding area is matched at this period only at Tiryns and Troy. Work on preserving and presenting the site was advanced (Figs 1,2).
