Safi find gets an honorable mention

John Papadopoulos (UCLA) has been kind enough to send me an offprint of his article which deals with a reassessment of the term “Submycenaean” in the post-palatial Aegean, in which he mentions the Submycenaean/Early Protogeometric sherd from Safi (mentioned previously here). The reason that the Safi sherd is mentioned in this new study is that it is the first such sherd reported from the Levant, which may help serve as a chronological correlation for the dating of this class of pottery.

The article’s full reference is:
