Dalit Regev studies aspects of Canaanite-Phoenician culture, especially trade, pottery, Aegyptiaca and ancient DNA. She received her PhD in 2006. Having worked in the past at research centers at the Hebrew University and for the Harvard Excavations at Ashkelon, she currently works for the Israel Antiquities Authority. Her main publications are on Phoenician Amphorae (2004), the Phoenician Hellenistic pottery from Akko-Ptolemais (2009), Egyptian Stone Objects (2013 and 2016), the Phoenician Origins of Eastern Sigillata Ware A (2014), and The Power of the Written Evidence: a Hellenistic Burial Cave at Marisa (2019).


Canaanite-Phoenician coarse ware includes large and small vessels in open and closed forms used in domestic, industrial and ritual settings. Domestic vessels include jugs with four basic shapes (Ridge-Neck, Wide Spouted, Trefoil Mouth and Mushroom Rim) and cooking pots in two shapes (Neckless and Sharply Dropping Rim). Commercial vessels include juglets, bottles in two shapes (“Samian” and Bulbous), and amphoriskoi. Ritual vessels include kraters, urns, small jars, oil-lamps and tripod bowls. Although the Canaanite-Phoenician coarse ware produced in the Levant was not distributed outside Levantine sites, all these forms were locally produced in Canaanite-Phoenician sites in the west, with some variations and local preferences at times.
