Iberian tableware

Vitrina 68
On display, a selection of pottery from various Iberian archaeological sites in Valencia. Oxidant-firing ceramics with red and beige tones are Iberian productions from the fifth century up to the second centuries B.C. They are decorated with figurative hunting scenes, vegetables and geometrical motifs and patterns, like the one in Tossal de la Cala (Benidorm, Alicante).
Black glazed ceramics are Greek and Italic productions imported by Iberian groups through trading networks, which increased especially since the 5th and 4 th centuries B.C. onwards.
Textiles are represented by a whorl from Utiel, exceptionally decorated with birds and geometric patterns.
