Summary/Abstract: Stamped decoration was one of the most common elements of the ornamentation of Black-Glazed ware from the middle of the 5th to the middle of the 2nd century BC. Palmettes as its element have been repeatedly considered in the literature devoted to both Attic and Italian and Asia Minor Black-Glazed ceramics, but the ceramics from Panticapaeum has not yet been the subject of a separate study.About 300 pieces from Panticapaeum are decorated with palmettes. But the quality of some of the prints did not allow to reliably identify them. Thus, the author analyzed 241 images. Of the entire array of images, two main groups and 21 subgroups of impressions, more than 80 different palmette stamps on vessels of Attic origin and 17 stamps on vessels from other centers are distinguished. The greatest variety of forms of vessels decorated with palmettes is typical for the second half of the 5th — 4th centuries BC, their number significantly reducing in the 3rd—2nd centuries BC. For different types of vessels of the same time, palmettes could be applied with the same stamp, which may indicate their manufacturing by one workshop. Among the pottery from Panticapaeum, palmette prints on more than 40 items are obviously made with the same stamps as on some vessels discovered on the Athens agora and some other sites from both the Mediterranean and Black Sea regions.
