This book inaugurates a series of volumes that will present the results of more than twenty years of research by a team of American and Yugoslav scholars at Stobi, an ancient city of northern Macedonia. The research was multidisciplinary, and methodological innovations augmented more traditional methodologies of archaeological, historical, and art historical research. The series illuminates numerous aspects of urban life at Stobi, which spanned some nine centuries, from the early Hellenistic period until the end of the sixth century A.D. This first volume of the series is also the first comprehensive study of Hellenistic and Roman pottery in Macedonia. Its detailed presentation of the types and quantities of imported wares and local products together with a series of well-dated contexts documents the economic history of Stobi as well as the broader region of Macedonia. It will interest social and economic historians, as well as archaeologists and pottery specialists.
