As for painted pottery, continental Aeolis has obviously not been a leading manufacturer during the Archaic period: a single centre only seems to have dispatched its products overseas. Contrary to all expectations, lab results obtained both in Lyon in the late seventies and more recently in Bonn did not point out to Phocaea (Dupont 1983, 22–3; Dupont, in press; Kerschner 2004). The chemical pattern of the distinctive group ‘Eolide archaïque’ individualized in Lyon, based on representative samples from Larisa, Cyme, Myrina, Gryneion and Phocaea, differs from those of the two local groups at fi rst identified in Phocaea: a main one, almost exclusively made up of ‘Late Roman C’ specimens, manufactured from volcanic clay materials, and a smaller one of banded common ware, the chemical pattern of which fits the ones of kitchen wares (with low CaO and high K2O contents).

Some archaeological finds, both in the city and in the cemeteries, confi rm these contacts. 9]. Archaeological evidence confi rms that many native settlements around Emporion had close relationships with the Greek city from at least the sixth century. Those contacts are attested by the native adoption of Greek architectural elements, the use, sometimes on a large scale, of Greek pottery, and Greek influence on native manufactures. We can also observe the introduction among the natives of Greek ideas and techniques, for instance the rise of cereal agriculture in the territories surrounding Emporion and the arrival in the native world near Emporion of prestige goods clearly used for ritual purposes, which were also given a religious use by the natives themselves.

This must have been quite specific in nature, since the main evidence – Greek pottery – is not present in significant quantities in the south-east of the Iberian Peninsula until the middle of the 5th century BC (Domínguez and Sánchez, 2001; Domínguez, 2001–2, 189–204; 2003, 201–4). There are other indicators which provide a clue to the type of relationship established: they are related not to Greek activities in themselves but to the consequences of such activities on the native population. Thus, both sculpture and writing appear as forms of expression controlled by native élites.
