Mochlos III: The Late Hellenistic Settlement


This volume presents the first of several Late Hellenistic buildings that were uncovered on the island of Mochlos, located off the northeastern coast of Crete, during the Greek-American excavations of the last 25 years. It also provides an introduction to the Hellenistic settlement that flourished on the island for nearly a century before it was abandoned. The Hellenistic remains overlay much of the Late Minoan III and Neopalatial settlement. Due to the excavation of both the Bronze Age and later phases of the town, the publication of this Hellenistic building includes paleoenvironmental material (among all the other artifacts), which is often neglected in excavations of historical material. The role that Mochlos played in East Crete is discussed and conclusions are drawn about its relations with Hierapytna during the Late Hellenistic period.

Reviews & Quotes

"This research provides us with a credible reconstruction of the Hellenistic Cretan olive oil industry and the early phases of Cretan wine production and export. These are not insignificant conclusions, and the publication of this volume both augments our knowledge about late Hellenistic Crete and also serves as a template for future studies of contemporary structures and sites."
