- As regards petrography; as regards mineralogical and chemical constitution and structure: as, two kinds of gneiss petrographically distinct.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The samples will be analyzed petrographically and geochemically (stable isotopes) to evaluate this area as a possible source area for the stones used at Sagalassos.
Different types have previously been macroscopically and petrographically characterized in the city's monumental structures, and they include marble, limestone, conglomerate, breccias, travertine, granite, and sand-to-siltstone of different qualities.
Methodologically, geochemical analysis of this resource material and ceramic material will be able to determine whether certain petrographically identified inclusions were either natural or intentionally added during the production of the ceramics.
The extensive small variation, both macroscopically and petrographically observable within this group, is likely related to the use of several fairly small clay deposits instead of large-scale exploitation (for example, Sagalassos Red Slip Ware).
The last weeks of the 2007 campaign will be reserved for further macroscopic definition of the fabrics of several (mainly) pre-Roman ceramic assemblages found on the (Sagalassos) territory in order to establish an initial, petrographically and geochemically verified "Pisidian Fabric Reference Collection" (this year material from Hacilar, Kepez Kalesi and the material collected within the Aglasun valley by H. Vanhaverbeke), roughly encompassing the first millennium B.C., so including both the Early Iron Age, the Archaic, the Classical, and Post-Classical, and finally the Hellenistic periods.
Ontario in order to: 1) mineralogically characterize the 577 samples by QEMSCAN, 2) determine magnesite and talc contents of each sample, 3) determine the minerals that contribute certain potentially recoverable trace elements, 4) look at selected samples petrographically (21 samples) to aid with a petrogenetic model and 5) determine the "natural variability" of a
