Interdisciplinary Center of Archaeological Research





Research interests:

Archaeology and material culture of the Graeco-Roman civilization. Production, trade and consumption of pottery from the Late Classical period until the Early Byzantine times (4th c. BC – 7th c. AD). Analyzing of ceramic finds as an important source for studying continuity and changes of material culture as well as economic and settlement history of specific archaeological sites, regions and in the supra regional perspective. Typo-chronological investigations of specific fine pottery groups in order to identify important and easily attainable dating materials useful as initial chronological indicators in archaeological fieldworks. Processing, studying and publishing finds of Hellenistic, Roman and Early Byzantine pottery from several current archaeological excavations carried out in: Akrai in Sicily (since 2013), Chhim and Jiyeh in Lebanon (2003–2018), Pompeiopolis and Sinop in Turkey (since 2009), Ptolemais in Libya (2009), Olbia in Ukraine (2006–2008), Tanais in Russia (since 1998), Novae in Bulgaria (1996–2012), Nymphaion in Ukraine (1994–1998).
