This volume publishes the Proceedings of an International Symposium held at the University of Brussels (ULB) in June 2008. Contributions discuss the role played by Greek pottery in trade networks and exchanges in the ancient Mediterranean world. Articles are grouped according to three topics, Trade and traders: value, transport and places of exchange; Markets and products: the markets of fine ware; markets and products: vase containers. Written by ancient historians, archaeologists and ceramic specialists, the papers build a bridge between different visions of ancient markets, and lead to constructive exchanges about the place of pottery within the wider context of ancient economy as well as that of social and cultural consumption preferences.
