Seven marked vases or vase fragments were discovered in the course of the 2010-2011 excavation season at Pyla-Kokkinokremos. Six are handles with incised marks and there is a Mycenaean pictorial amphoroid krater with two marks painted on its lower body. Two of the marks occur on Cypriote pottery (Plain White jugs), two on imported pottery (Minoan and Mycenaean amphoroid kraters); the three marked amphoras are also probably imported. Of special significance are the inscription (no. 72) and the amphoroid krater with painted marks found in a non-funerary context (no. 76).
