Abstract

The trace element boron is present in most ancient glasses as an impurity, and high boron (≥ 300 ppm) marks raw material sources that are geologically specific and relatively uncommon. Recent analyses of Byzantine glass with high boron contents suggest that glass-making was not limited to the traditional regions of the Levant and Egypt, and a production origin in or near western Anatolia is proposed. Glass bracelets from Ḥiṣn al-Tīnāt in southern Turkey give fresh evidence for the production and circulation of high-boron glasses that closely correlates with object typology. The patterning of findspots suggests that high-boron glass was closely connected to the Byzantine world.
