Arcadian Miniature Pottery
MetadataShow full item record
Over the past eight years, this author has undertaken research regarding a specific genre of ceramics, miniature vessels. Having studied, drawn, photographed, and compared hundreds of miniature vessels in Arcadia and throughout Greece, she provides in this paper a brief summary of the history of study regarding miniature vessels and defines what a miniature vessel is. An overview of those vessels found in Ancient Arcadia follows, focusing on research conducted with three specific projects: Bassai, Asea, and Tegea. While this overview of Arcadia miniatures is brief, it provides the introduction into a topic that is blooming, as are all other aspects of research in the Ancient Arcadian region, which brought us together to the seminar in Athens.
