Die Bedeutung von Stein als Baumaterial in griechischen Siedlungen des westlichen Mittelmeerraumes

This research will examine in detail the stone industry of the Greek settlements in Sicily and Southern Italy, which is of elementary importance for the monumentalization of the Greek settlements. An increasing usage of stone building elements on sacred buildings and city walls can be proved in the whole Greek culture already from the second half of the 7th century B.C., but especially in the settlements in Sicily and Southern Italy these phases of monumentalization are particularly tangible. The use of worked stone is of elementary importance for the urbanistic extension and expansion processes of the settlements of the western Mediterranean. The focus of the study is therefore on a systematic analysis of the building material stone in the context of Greek settlements from the Archaic to the Hellenistic period.
