The entire contents of a small Geometric period (900-700 B.C.) cemetery of twenty graves, found just south of the Tholos in the Athenian Agora, are catalogued in this book. Three additional graves, a well, and selection of isolated finds provide the author with a mass of Geometric and proto-Attic pottery from which to develop important typological observations about Attic ceramics at this formative period.
