Extrait du texte

The aim of this paper is to survey the places devoted to consumption in Protopalatial Phaistos, with a special focus on MM IIB, during which period a larger amount of data is available, considering in an inclusive reading both the pottery assemblages and the features of their find spots. The latter, on the basis (a) of the architectural patterns (for instance the presence of benches), (b) of their topographical location (in the palace or in the town area), and (c) of their position within the buildings to which they belong, could be considered as different physical contexts, where consumption episodes took place. These can be domestic, official or be placed in a mixed position as argued by the recent reconsideration of building CV–CVII, located outside the palace area, on the slopes of the Acropoli Mediana, where it is possible to identify a great hall (endowed with a long bench and with an alabaster slabs floor) specifically used to host consumption activities.
