Abstract

In the first half, probably the second quarter, of the sixth century B.C.E., a ship sank off the coast of Pabuç Burnu, Turkey, southeast of Bodrum (ancient Halikarnassos). Excavated by the Institute of Nautical Archaeology in 2002 and 2003, the preserved ceramic cargo and hull remains of the vessel provide evidence for the development of production and exchange systems in the Archaic period. The circulation of agricultural products in a moderate-sized merchant vessel—carrying a load of well under 10 tons—speaks for a practice of local transport designed to operate in a rather different framework of consumption from the exchange of luxury items catalogued by early Greek lyric poets or the optimized mechanisms utilized in the markets of classical Athens. This preliminary report of the ship's cargo and construction situates the vessel within the developing commercial environment of standardized quality and quantity in the archaic eastern Mediterranean.
