Abstract

For the last 20 years research on painted pottery, red figured pottery and Gnathia pottery in Southern Italy, which includes defining their chronological framework of production and indentifying the local workshops, provides a better insight into the import painted pottery in the Eastern Adriatic coast in late 4th and 3rd century BC. Most of the imported vessels come from the workshop in Apulia, the Greek colony of Taras on the shores of the Ionian Sea and the native Messapian, Peucetian and Daunian workshops. Although red figured pottery from Apulia are not widely exported outside the home area of production, though examples are found on the Eastern Adriatic, in ancient Issa on the island of Vis and Pharos on the island of Hvar. However, Gnathia pottery, which from the second half of the 4th century BC begins to produce in the workshops in native Apulia, has found a wide market on the Eastern Adriatic. It is interesting to trace the distribution of Canosian (north Apulia) Gnathia products on the East Adriatic, and it is assumed that the potters from Canosa founded the local production of Gnathia pottery in Issa in the middle of the 3rd century. Other than products from the South Italy, on the Eastern Adriatic coast were found and painted Alto Adriatico vessels from the workshops of Northern Italy According to the distribution map of Gnathia and Alto Adriatico vessels on the Eastern Adriatic coast, it is evident that not only the inhabitants of the Greek colonies of Issa and Pharos consumed products of the Italic and Greek ceramics workshop, but the indigenous population has shown a specific interest in such pottery
