Amphoras main directory

This directory is the WWW site of:
* The AMPHORAS Project
Information on plain, unglazed, ceramic storage containers, with two handles, mostly pointed at the bottom, used to carry wine and oil and some other commodities around the ancient Mediterranean. AMPHORAS is making available part of the archive collected by Virginia R. Grace at the excavations of the Agora at Athens, as well as additional materials. Included to date are references in ancient Greek literature to the use of amphoras; an extensive bibliography of scholarly work on finding, identifying, and hypothesizing about amphoras and the trade they carried; translations of some Russian works on amphoras.
* TOCS-IN: Tables of Contents of Interest to Classicists
References to articles published in 198 journals on Classics, Archaeology, Religious and Near Eastern Studies, and a few others, starting with 1992. The archive contains over 100,000 articles, fully searchable, with links to those which are available (texts or abstracts) without charge on the Internet.
