Khalasma Alonia Venetian-Turkish period sherd assemblage.
Sphakia Survey

We have collected a good range of Venetian pottery from Patsianos Village and Khalasma Alonia. From Khalasma Alonia there is an excellent assemblage of Venetian (and Turkish) material.

The material includes examples of all four of our pottery types.

Table Wares consist of glazed bowls, of the fourteenth to sixteenth centuries, imported from Italy, some perhaps from the region of Venice.
