This work constitutes an introduction to the study of pottery production in ancient Issa. In a single place, it summarizes all previous data pertaining to pottery production confirmed by previous hypotheses thereon, while newly-discovered fragments of various pottery forms provide an insight into individual forms of Issa products during the Late Hellenistic and Early Roman periods. Pursuant to an analysis of the potsherds, pottery production in Issa can be followed from the third century BC, lasting until the third century AD at the very least. The fragments found testify to the diverse pottery production, from Hellenistic terracotta figures of Tanagra type and relief cups, to amphorae and dolia, juglets with single handles, stamped oil-lamps and so forth from the later Early Roman period. In cooperation with the Mining, Geology and Petrochemistry Faculty of the University of Zagreb, the first archaeometric analyses of ceramic fragments and possible deposits of clay on the island of Vis were conducted for the purpose of the best possible understanding of the actual process of making ceramics and the extent of pottery activity in this Eastern Adriatic city during the aforementioned periods. The results of these analyses are published here for the first time.
