Abstract

This article considers the question of Greek presence in the Levant from a number of viewpoints. It first surveys the attitudes of both classical and biblical archaeologists towards Greek imports in the Levant, examining the extent to which expectations have driven interpretation. It then addresses the problem of identifying the users of Greek pottery in the Levant and the criteria used to identify them. Such matters as quantities of imports, preferred shapes, shapes intended for special uses, and other elements of material culture such as architecture, burial customs, and inscriptions are discussed to see whether they can be used to help us identify Greeks in the East, or even whether they shed light on relations between Greece and the East.
