"his volume brings together two contributions born of different intentions but which are both dedicated to Hellenistic pottery of the Alexandria region. The previously unpublished material presented herein comes from excavations conducted by the CEAlex in the centre of Alexandria on the sites of the former British Consulate and the Cricket Ground, and from excavations outside the city conducted by the Italian mission on Nelson’s Island (MAIA) and by the French team in the necropolis of Plinthine (MAFTP). In the rst part we endeavour to de ne the dating and the manner of the birth of a ceramic industry within the new capital and its chora between the end of the 4th and the mid-3rd century bc, along with the nature of any imports. In the second part, a selection of assemblages in the ceramic material of the Cricket Ground has led to the establishment of a chronological sequence that marks out the 3rd and 2nd centuries bc in 25-year intervals and thus illustrates the evolution of Alexandrian features.
