dc.description.abstract This thesis addresses several questions: what wares were Hellenistic Moldmade bowls produced? What motifs are displayed on Hellenistic Moldmade bowls? How do the motifs and wares connect? Original methodology and close analysis of previously published site reports provides a framework for examining a connection between wares and motifs. This thesis will use eleven different site reports, spanning from Italy up to Bulgaria and across to Israel by which the Hellenistic Moldmade Bowls fit into an archaeological methodology. Previous scholarly work on the of origins and trade connections of Hellenistic Moldmade bowls have fallen short in discovering a link in wares and motifs to production centers for several reasons. One reason for this shortcoming, is due to the fact that ‘scholars,’ have yet to employ a methodology of establishing a connection between wares and motifs, and using that connection to promote an attribution to a workshop or production center. Another area of weakness arises when ‘scholars,’ attribute motifs to a workshop based solely on motifs, as well as attribute molds to a workshop based solely on the molds. The standardization of wares and motifs alongside tracking the connections between these two things are instrumental in understanding the possible production centers and trade connections interactions with each site analyzed.
