The Tilery in Samothraki

Samothraki in Evros, Greece
The road on the northern shore of the island of Samothraki, after its branches for the villages of Lower and Upper Kariotes leads to the locality of Keremidaria (Tilery), which is 5 km east of Paliapolis. Here archaeologists have found two workshops for making amphoras from the Hellenistic period which belonged to a large-scale complex of ceramic work rooms. A large rectangular work room, used during the late Hellenistic and the early Emperor period has been excavated. Close to it archaeologists have unearthed another place, used for storing ceramic waste from an earlier workshop where three ceramic furnaces have been found.
        Archaeologists have also found a considerable number of handles from amphoras with seals of at least 70 kinds dated from the second half of the 4th century to the middle of the 3rd century B.C. The amphora seals include a certain emblem ( a scepter, a ram’s head, a cap, a star, a dolphin, etc,), which is connected to the master or the work room.  These seals usually bear the name of a certain ruler from the year of production, who exercised financial (tax) control. Amphoras from Samothraki have been found in the coastal areas of Thrace, the north-eastern Aegean Sea and the Black Sea, as well as in the interior of the Balkan Peninsular, where they were used to export local wine in them.
       Finally, the excavated clay furnaces must have been part of a larger furnace system, dated from the Roman Empire period.
