Excavations at Kommos, southern Crete, yielded large amounts of pottery of the Iron Age from levels of slight chronological significance. In this article the author deals with such material, expanding the ceramic aspects of deposition, largely adumbrated in previous publications concerned with stratigraphically significant material from the site. The sum of these publications should therefore constitute an adequate record of the Iron Age pottery from Kommos. The present article also includes pieces of individual interest, whether fully explicable or not, for the scrutiny of a wider public.
