Ancient Greece, archaeological survey, pottery, Turkey


This is a report for the 1996 season of the Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey Project. This intensive, systematic archaeological survey took place in the vicinity of "known" Cilician pirate bases and their hinterlands . These sites offer a unique opportunity to evaluate the material remains of a distinctly nontraditional "culture" of the Hellenistic world, a culture receiving little previous archaeological attention. Our intention is to complete a surface survey of the sustaining areas of the three main sites, Coracesium (Alanya), Selinus (Gazipasha), and Antioch ad Cragum (Güney), including the intervening coastal strips as well as the major ridges that connect the coastal area with the Anatolian Plateau.
