Kappadokia Komana’sı Geç Roma Seramikleri

Hatice KÖRSULU   529–551

 

Abstract: Comana in Cappadocia is considered to be one of the important temple states of ancient Anatolia. Today, Comana is situated near Şarköy in the Tufanbeyli district of Adana province. This article focuses on late Roman pottery discovered during a survey conducted in Şarköy and the surrounding area in 2002. The earliest ceramics finds from Comana date back to the mid fourth century BC. It is believed that there had been a continuous settlement in the Hellenistic and Early Roman periods; there was also a local ceramics production in the city. Ceramics (such as bowls, plates and amphorae) from the late Roman period of Comana are scarce. Imported ceramics have not been found to date. The peculiar properties of late Roman shapes, the continuity of early Rome ornamental features and the corrupted production parts suggest that the local ceramics production continued into the late Roman period. As a matter of fact, the ceramic artifacts as well as the epigraphic data and the archi-tectural remains suggest that life in Comana continued until the 7th century.

Keywords: Comana; Cappadocia; Late Roman Period; pottery; terra sigillata; local production.
