The aim is to investigate the provenance of the raw materials and the technology of manufacture of the ceramics. Mt Olympus (2919 m.a.s.l.) and Mt Ossa (1978 m.a.s.l.) form the northeastern boundaries of the Thessalian Plain in Central Greece, separating the plain from the Aegean Sea.At the lower slopes of Mt Olympus and Mt Ossa, a series of intra-mountain basins develop between the lower eastern Thessalian Plain and the main mountain blocks.The present study deals with the archaeometric characterization of the Roman-Late Roman ceramic assemblage collected during the archaeological surface survey undertaken in the 1980s and 1990Drs J. Our main aim was to identify the Cretan production against potential imports from off-Cretan centers and local imitations of foreign prototypes.For this reason a total of 101 ceramic sherds were analyzed through mineralogical (X-ray powder Diffraction - XRPD; Optical microscopy – OM), petrographic (OM), and microstructural (Scanning Electron Microscopy – SEM) techniques.The hydrological conditions affected greatly the behaviour of human groups since prehistoric times. We interpret Bara Toibasi lake as a remnant of an older larger lake inside Sikourio basin. Lacustrine (lake) sediments are exposed in large abandoned clay quarries around Bara Toibasi lake, while in this study we document more outcrops to the northern part of Sikourio basin, with additional indications of probable extensive lacustrine sedimentation also in Elateia basin (Fig.1).Permanent settlements were founded here already during the Neolithic Age – some of them forming in the course of many centuries (ca. This lake is different from the ancient Lake Nessonis that extended in the Larisa plain south of Girtoni and from the Lake Karla south of Eleftherio (Gallis, 1992; Caputo et al. These extensive lacustrine sediments are indicators of a wider lake system that existed inside Sikourio and Elateia basins from Pliocene (?Using geological, geomorphological and archaeological observations, we propose the existence of a proto-Sikourio lake that covered Sikourio basin during Late Neogene - Quaternary.

Applications will be accepted only from Institutes/Centers established pursuant to the provisions of Section 104 of the Water Resources Research Act of 1984, as amended.

Xerias fan expansion and lake draining led to the creation of Bara Toibasi lake at the southern part of Sikourio, that remains disconnected hydrologically with the northern part (Fig. Sediment and water supply towards the northern part of proto-Sikourio lake/basin was probably affected by changes in the mountain catchments at Mt Ossa and identified large paleo-landslides that temporarily blocked drainage towards the lake/basin.

Bounarbasi gorge opening and lake outflow is estimated to have taken place before the Mesolithic period and the beginning of the Holocene, probably around or shortly after the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM, ~24-16ka BP).

Neolithic sites at the southern Sikourio basin are found around the estimated paleo-shoreline of Bara Toibasi.

Draining through the karstic aquifers of Chassambali hills and a probable lower water supply through Xerias river led to the shrinkage of Bara Toibasi from the Neolithic era up to today.
