 Linking Pots: Manufacturing and selling
Roman pottery in the Eastern Mediterranean

Athens, Greece, 20th - 26th September 2020

The 32nd Congress of the Rei Cretariae Romanae Fautores, will be held in Athens, Greece, from September 20th to September 25th 2020. Depending on the number of proposals, the Congress sessions could be extended one more day.

The Congress will be organized by the Department of Archaeology and the History of Art of the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens and the Ephorate of Antiquities of Cyclades (Ministry of Culture and Sports), in collaboration with various Greek and foreign institutions.

In this Congress, we would like to focus on the production and distribution of Roman and Late Roman pottery in the Eastern Mediterranean and the cultural links created by this exchange.

Arrivals are expected on Sunday (September 20th) with a welcoming session in the late afternoon. The congress sessions will take place in the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens. A one-day tour to the Roman/Late Roman antiquities of Athens is planned. Hands on pottery displays and exhibitions of Roman/Late Roman pottery from Athens and the Cyclades will also be arranged in the Museum of Archaeology and Art History of the NKUA. In the post-Congress tour (optional) we will visit Thebes and Delphi (September 26th or 27th); in the latter, we will visit monuments of the Roman and Late Roman period not accessible to tourists.

The length of lectures is restricted to 15 minutes. As the number of lectures is limited, we ask you to prepare a poster instead of lecture whenever possible. There will be sufficient space and time for posters in A1 format (841 Χ 594 mm - portrait format). Posters must be printed by participants. Each participant should give no more than one lecture or poster. We ask you to offer papers in conformity with the theme of the congress, although papers on other topics will also be accepted. Participants are kindly encouraged to use PowerPoint presentations. The Congress languages will be English, Italian, French, German, Spanish and Greek. The participants are kindly recommended to prepare the texts of their PowerPoint presentations in English independently of the language of the oral presentation.
