Abstract and Keywords

This article states that the excellent recent survey of Penelope Mountjoy employs a slightly different approach, taking the phases of the Mycenaean pottery sequence as the framework and setting for cultural and historical developments in the Cyclades. It incorporates new evidence and provides some corrections to the former, and shows that the two can profitably be used in combination. Divergences between their methods are most evident from middle Late Cycladic III onward. Evidence cited here is chiefly from the major sites—Akrotiri on Thera, Ayia Irini on Kea, Phylakopi on Melos, and Grotta on Naxos. The sequence at Phylakopi still provides a useful key for much of the period—not least because of its primary role in the history of research. To this, developments at other sites can be generally, if not always precisely, related.

Keywords: Penelope Mountjoy, Mycenaean pottery, Cyclades, Late Cycladic III, Akrotiri, Ayia Irini, Phylakopi, Grotta
