Material Koinai in the Greek Early Iron Age and Archaic Period

Details

'Koine' was used to describe the new common language dialect that became widespread in the ancient Greek world after the conquests of Alexander the Great. Modern scholars have increasingly used the word to conceptualise regional homogeneities in the material culture of the ancient Mediterranean. In this volume, 20 scholars from various disciplines present case studies that focus on the fundamental question of the social and cultural mechanisms that led to the spread and consumption of material culture in the Greek early Iron Age.
