Item Open AccessSome new thoughts on Herodes Atticus's tomb, his stadium of 143/4, and Philostratus VS 2.550(Archaeological Institute of America (Boston), 1993-01) Tobin, J.In the early 140s Herodes Atticus rebuilt the Panath- enaic stadium and constructed a temple to Tyche on the hill above. So closely was Herodes associated with this area that when he died in A.D. 179 the people of Athens buried him there. Across the stadium from the Tyche temple a sarcophagus, an inscription, and the ruins of a long nar- row building have been thought to represent the remains of Herodes' tomb. The date and the unfinished state of the sarcophagus, however, make it unsuitable for Her- odes, and the inscription cannot be used in identifying the site of burial. The long building itself is not a tomb, but a monument built to house the Panathenaic ship that Herodes provided for the Panathenaic procession of 143/4. Herodes' actual resting place may be in the running track, as would befit his elevated status.

New evidence from pottery analysis(Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, 1999) Helwing, B.Pottery analysis at Hassek Höyük revealed inconsistencies in the material record, where it is possible to identify a group of hybrid pottery combining stylistic and technological features of both the Uruk and the Syro-Anatolian Late Chalcolithic cultures. This hybrid pottery at Hassek Höyük is interpreted as the work of local craftsmen who, during a period of intensive contact with the Uruk culture, integrated some features of the Uruk pottery into their own production mode. The continuous use of chaff tempered clay shows a strong conservative tendency and argues for a local continuity of craftsmanship. Thus, the pottery production at Hassek is deeply rooted within the local cultural tradition of the Syro-Anatolian Late Chalcolithic. This is a strong argument against the interpretation of the site as being a wellplanned colony erected on virgin soil by a group of foreign Uruk traders.
