  • A regional production centre for Sagalassos red slip ware (a Roman-period table ware), the Potters 'Quarter is a unique feature to the study of urban crafts production, and one of the few cases systematically excavated from the eastern Roman world. the area excavated this season is a continuation of the excavation of 2004, which excavated a workshop complex identified as a coroplast workshop. the material retrieved from the workshop suggests a specialization in the production of moulded items (lamps, vessels, terracotta figurines, etc.) as well as some red-slipped table ware types. the original excavation of the workshop complex produced the remains of numerous spaces and six kilns with several phases of activity dating from the late Hellenistic/early Imperial periods until the late 6th century. the primary phase of production activity of the complex has been dated to the late Roman period (5th - 6th centuries).
