Bibliography of Amphora Studies

The references here are by no means exhaustive in any category, though probably better on the Greek side than for Italy and other Mediterranean sites. Items are generally listed under only one heading: Rhodian amphoras will be found under "Rhodian" in classes, under "Greece -- RHODES" in Sites in Greece and Italy, and throughout History and Trade. A search for "rhod" will find all of these, and provide links to any other files containing the term.
