Early Post-Byzantine Ceramics from Larisa

Two types of early post Byzantine ceramics have been found in Larisa: 1. Waterspots of type A. found 80-120 cm. below the present ground level. These feature a spherical belly and wide base, a narrow neck and a long spout rising close to the neck. They belong to the 17th-18th centuries. 2. Waterspots of type B. Group a. are with a spherical belly broadening at the poles of the pot, while the neck is wide and long. In Group b. the belly is strongly pressed along the diameter of the sphere and is small compared to the size of the neck. These belong to the 16th- 17th centuries.
