Abstract

This thesis aims to study local ceramic productions in Anatolia during the Hellenistic and the Roman periods. It analyzes the ceramic productions of Phocaea, Magnesia ad Maeandrum and Cnidus in the western coast, Sagalassos in the inner Anatolia, and Sinope in the southern Black sea region. The aim of the thesis is to examine whether it is possible to group shape production geographically in Anatolia and to detect whether local centers influenced each other or if external influence can be recognized, for example from Athens. The thesis shows there are regional similarities between the workshops of different regions in Anatolia during the Hellenistic period and there was an interaction of some popular shapes and decorations between the productions of the workshops of Athens and Anatolia. In the Roman period, there are regional differences in the production of the same shapes and Athens loss its influence on the shapes of Anatolia.
