Summary/Abstract: The Megarian bowls signed KIPBEI date from the second half of the 2nd century BC and were apparently made in the north-western part of the Pontic area, most probably in Olbia. Besides the main exporting centres (Athens, Ephesus, Pergamon) lesser quality bowls, partly copied from better models, were made by local potters in many North Aegean and Pontic Greek cities.
