The distribution of mainland pottery in the Cyclades during LC I, together with information about the relative abundance and degree of variety in which it occurs at different Cycladic sites, suggests a distinct pattern of attenuation with distance as one progresses from N to S down the "Western String" of islands. Despite the limited evidence so far available, it is possible to narrow considerably the range of exchange mechanisms likely to have produced such a pattern; it is proposed here that it may have been middlemen traders who introduced non-local ceramic products into the Cyclades at this time.
