Numerous sherds of fine Greek and Hellenistic ware found at the Diomedes sanctuary on Palagruža - a small island in the middle of the Adriatic - already attracted the attention of scholars in the field of ceramic studies. However, most of the fine ware was published in the field reports as a result of preliminary analysis. The study of the Gnathia and West Slope ware presents the first details analyses of two types of fine ware found on this island sanctuary. Comparative typological and stylistically analyses of Gnathia ware have shown that the most common shapes of vessels were cups and jugs of the late 4thand 3rdc. BC of Apulian provenance, while some sherds can be attributed to Issaean production. These testify that sailors from both Adriatic coasts visited the sanctuary. The rare sherds of the contemporaneous West Slope ware found on Palagruža could belong to the Attic provenance and one Medusa plate belongs to Cretan production. Most sherds of both types of ware belong to wine drinking sets, attesting that drinking was main activity on the sanctuary during the Hellenistic times. // Brojni ulomci fine grčke i helenističke keramike nađeni u Diomedovu svetištu na Palagruži - otočiću usred Jadrana - već su privukli pozornost znanstvenika na području istraživanja keramike. No veći dio fine keramike objavljen je u terenskim izvješćima slijedom preliminarnih analiza. Studija keramike tipa Gnathia i West Slope predstavlja prvu detaljnu analizu ovih dvaju tipova fine keramike nađene u tom otočnom svetištu. Komparativne tipološke i stilske analize keramike tipa Gnathia pokazale su da se najveći dio najzastupljenijih tipova posuda odnosi na čaše i vrčeve iz kasnog 4. i 3. st. pr. Kr., poglavito apulskog podrijetla, dok se neki ulomci mogu pripisati isejskoj proizvodnji. To svjedoči o tome da su svetište pohodili pomorci s obje obale Jadrana. Rijetki ulomci onovremene keramike tipa West Slope pronađeni na Palagruži mogli bi biti atičkog podrijetla, a jedan tanjur s glavom Meduze pripada kretskoj produkciji. Većina ulomaka obaju tipova keramike pripada posuđu za konzumaciju vina, što potvrđuje da je pijenje bilo glavna aktivnost u svetištu tijekom helenističkog razdoblja.
