Kalos Limen (26/3/2007 v.1) Καλός Λιμήν (21/11/2007 v.1)

Kalos Limen (modern Chernomorskoe), the ancient greek sea port colony in the north-western Crimea, was first settled in the middle of the 4th century B.C. Its history is bound to that of the Taurian Chersonesus and it became the apple of discord for Chersonesians and Scythians. Excavations have so far uncovered remains of the fortification system, ground plans of domestic structures and evidence of a cemetery. Moreover, it has been proved that economy was primarily based on agriculture, while...

Kerch Vases

Kerch Vases (19/4/2007 v.1) Αγγεία του Κερτς (26/3/2007 v.1)

The Kerch vases represent the last bloom of Attic red-vase painting. Most of them have been unearthed in the area of the Kingdom of Pontus (modern south Ukraine and Russia). Their dating and attribution to specific vase painters is problematic. The Kerch style is a combination of a new pictorial expression influenced by monumental painting and sculpture within the confines of the traditional style. Its iconographic themes originate mainly from the mythology.

Калиакра е крепост и селище на едноименен нос на западния бряг на Понтос Еуксейнос (Черно море). През античността е укрепено селище „хорион”, незначително засегнат от „елинската колонизация” /VII в. пр.Хр./.

При императорите Валент и Юстиниан І значението на Калиакра в тази част на Понтос Еуксейнос нараства и силно се укрепва. Създадената през втората половина на...
