Review quote

The importance of a good book on the dating of Athenian Hellenistic wares can hardly be underestimated. The Hellenistic period was the time in which large Hellenistic states had replaced the Greek poleis and Greece became incorporated in the Roman state. To those who wish to study the effects of these far-reaching changes on the various Greek societies at close quarters, the presence of a good chronological framework for the most common household ceramics is rather essential.Douwe Yntema, "BABesch" 75 (2000), pp. 208-209.
