Recently conducted archaeometric clay analyses indicate that there was an archaic pottery workshop around Canakkale. This production center, the so called "the Hellespont Workshop", produced pottery mainly in the South Ionian style. The products of the workshop were imported at least to some of the Black Sea colonies, like Istros and Berezan. One of the aims of this study, is to define the production of this workshop, in the light of the analysed examples. The excavation of the necropolis of Parion in 2004, revealed some pottery which was probably the product of the 'Hellespont Workshop'. Besides, some other classes of pottery might be assigned to this workshop or to another local production center.
