Description (deu)

Die Monographie stellt die Publikation der Siegel (S1–S16), Siegelabdrücke (N1–N75) und gesiegelten Objekte (I1–I3) dar, die in der bronzezeitlichen Stätte von Akrotiri auf Thera zutage gekommen sind. Ihre Kontextdatierungen reichen von der Phase Mittelkykladisch A, die ungefähr der Phase Mittelminoisch I entspricht (um die Jahrhundertwende vom dritten zum zweiten Jahrtausend v. Chr.), bis in die endgültige vulkanische Zerstörungsphase, die in die fortgeschrittene Periode Spätkykladisch/Spätminoisch IA (1623/1530 v. Chr.) datiert. Die Mehrheit der untersuchten Objekte war auf minoische Kreta hergestellt und als fertige Stücke nach Akrotiri importiert worden.

Description (eng)

The monograph contains the primary publication of the seals (S1–S16), sealings (N1–N75) and stamped objects (I1–I3) retrieved at the Bronze Age site of Akrotiri in Thera. Their contexts date from the MC A period, which corresponds roughly to the Cretan MM I period (at the turn of the third to the second millennium BC), until the final volcanic destruction phase that occurred at a mature phase of LC/LM IA (1623/1530 BC). The majority of the objects examined had been manufactured in Minoan Crete and were imported to Akrotiri as readymade items.
