Agora Publication: AgoraPicBk 6 (1961)
Title:   Amphoras and the Ancient Wine Trade
Author:   Grace, V. R
Abstract:   Although this booklet is based on broken pottery found during the excavation of the Agora, the author ranges far beyond the confines of Athens in her discussion of the purpose and significance of different amphora types. She shows how chronological variations in shape and the geographical clues offered by stamped handles make amphoras a fascinating source of economic information. The booklet illustrates many different forms of amphora, all set into context by the well-written text.
