Abstract

Stone vessels represent one of the rarest artifactual categories of Neolithic Greece. Only several dozen specimens (mostly fragmentary) have been recovered from 65 sites. These objects are also some of the least studied; with few exceptions, they are known only through superficial reports. Thus, their potential to shed light on social and economic aspects of Neolithic life remains unexploited. In this article, I address this problem in two ways. First, I focus on a specific stone vase assemblage: that from the well-known site of Franchthi in the north-eastern Peloponnese. This is one of the largest assemblages and is presented here in detail. Secondly, I use the Franchthi assemblage as a point of departure to attempt a synthesis of the available information on Greek Neolithic stone vases.

Συναρμογή θραυσμάτων: λίθινα αγγεία από το Φράγχθι και άλλες Ελληνικές Νεολιθικές θέσεις

Τα λίθινα αγγεία συνιστούν μία από τις σπανιότερες κατηγορίες τέχνεργων της Νεολιθικής Ελλάδας. Μόνο μερικές δεκάδες (ως επί το πλείστον αποσπασματικά) δείγματα έχουν έρθει στο φως από 65 θέσεις. Αυτά τα αντικείμενα είναι επίσης από τα πιο παραμελημένα καθώς, με λίγες εξαιρέσεις, είναι γνωστά μόνο μέσω επιφανειακών αναφορών. Κατά συνέπεια, η δυνατότητά τους να διαφωτίσουν κοινωνικές και οικονομικές πτυχές του Νεολιθικού τρόπου ζωής παραμένει αναξιοποίητη. Σε αυτό το άρθρο προσεγγίζω το πρόβλημα με δύο τρόπους. Πρώτον, εστιάζω σε ένα συγκεκριμένο υλικό: τα λίθινα αγγεία που ανασκάφτηκαν στη γνωστή θέση Φράγχθι της βορειοανατολικής Πελοποννήσου. Αυτό είναι ένα από τα μεγαλύτερα σύνολα και παρουσιάζεται εδώ λεπτομερώς. Δεύτερον, έχοντας ως σημείο αφετηρίας το εν λόγω υλικό, επιχειρώ μία σύνθεση όλων των διαθέσιμων δεδομένων αναφορικά με τα Ελληνικά Νεολιθικά λίθινα αγγεία.
