One of the few excavated fortifications in eastern Attica, Koroni has provided crucial data points for Attic ceramic typologies and the narrative of the Chremonidean War over the last 60 years. Although debate continues concerning the circumstances of the construction and occupation of the site, the primary mode of scrutiny has been chronological - to expand or shift the time period in which objects and structures could have been used. No one has yet reassessed the finds in their archaeological context, situated the full corpus of ceramic material within a broader regional setting, and used that information to assess the purpose of the site. A re-evaluation of the material collected in 1960 has, therefore, been long overdue. I present the excavated ceramic corpus in its archaeological context to shape new questions concerning community organization at Koroni and the function of the site, and conclude with a glimpse into Koroni’s role within the military and economic crosscurrents of the region.

Mise au jour sur une longueur totale de 350 m, elle part de la porte Sud du rempart et se dirige vers le Pheidokastro, où était situé le port de la ville antique, Ambrakos. Large de 10-12 m, longée par un trottoir surélevé, elle...
