Byzantine and Christian Museum of Athens: the pottery on display

I had a chance to spend two entire weeks in Athens last November. Apart from studying at the Italian, British and American libraries, I also visited the Byzantine and Christian Museum, that has a good collection of Early Byzantine pottery and silverware. The collection was noted by Sebastian Heath, who used to keep a review of such resources on one of his blogs.

Archaeologist, I work in Liguria where I live with my family. In my studies, I spent most of my energies with the Late Antique and Early Medieval/Byzantine period on the northern side of the Mediterranean, focusing on pottery usage patterns. I'm also involved in open source and open knowledge initiatives.
