Gnathia ware was found at 38 sites on the eastern Adriatic coast

and its immediate interior. Nonetheless, the most vessels of this

pottery type were found in Antique-era Issa. The high number

and specific characteristics in the shape and ornamentation on

the vessels from Issa have led to the hypothesis on local Issa

production of this pottery type. Branko Kirigin first stated this

hypothesis on the basis of study of the tomb inventory from the

necropolis at Martvilo in Vis, dividing the Gnathia vessels from

Issa into four phases. Using stylistic methods for the attribution

of painters and groups, analysis of morphology on all vessels thus

far published in the eastern Adriatic, the author compared new

knowledge on this pottery type with Kirigin’s theses. She also offers

a development of the typology of the Issa Gnathia ware vessels

inside a chronological framework from the mid-third to the end of

the second century BC.
