A Group Of Late Roman Pottery From Harabebezikan Mound In Upper Euphrates (Turkey)
From the 1960s, the building of large scale dams on the Euphrates River, unfortunately have placed many ancient and modern settlements under water, including important ancient sites like Samosata, and Apamea totally, and Zeugma partly. Harabebezikan is such a site, that it was affected by Carchemish Dam construction, and this paper will present a group of Late Roman pottery found in a short term rescue excavation there. Among the Late Roman pottery finds from sites, quite a number of local coarse ware, a few â€œLate Roman Câ€ Ware; cooking pots belonging to the so-called Brittle Ware and also North Syrian Amphorae are represented. Only a handful of examples from sites in Southeast Anatolia and North Syria have been published. For that reason, their types, production centers and distribution areas have been not clear so far. Although Harabebezikan examples do not provide new evidence for dating, they are important as there are some new types here and the site gives new distribution evidence.
