During research at the eastern necropolis in ancient Issa, an interesting

- and in Croatia’s territory, unique - ceramic object was found inside

grave 66: a Red-figure fish plate. The author’s intention is to provide

a brief review of the application of this pottery form and the various

workshops in which it was produced. Based on a detailed analysis of

the plate from Issa, the author proposes dating to the latter half of the

fourth century BC, and discusses a possible production site and its

function inside burial rites. A deceased male was interred in grave 66,

while the fish plate as a grave good, together with a possible wooden

coffin as a grave structure, supplement the picture of burial customs in

Issa in the fourth century BC.1
