Aptera yields more stamped fragments of terra sigillata than any other Cretan city, including Knossos. This book presents stamped fragments of Italian and eastern sigillata found in excavations of the Theatre of Aptera and examines Crete’s strategic position amid crossroads of transit and exchange as well as integration into the Roman economy.
'Issues with this work are few… a testament to the thorough and precise research of Baldwin Bowsky. […] The publication of the stamped sigillata from Aptera expands this knowledge, especially for the role played by the city in trade networks both on and off the island.'
