Description

Adalya Supplement Series 14



186 pp, olor figures, pb, in Turkish-English bilingual.



The excavation of the murex dye workshops was started in 2010 at the Harbor Agora at the ancient settlement of Andriake, where we have been conducting excavations since 2009. This excavation that uncovered a well-preserved murex dye production facility along with other finds in their historical context was largely completed at the end of the field season in 2011. It provided a valuable opportunity for understanding this industry. This study attempts to examine the workshops at the settlement of Andriake.
