Kothon, cothon et ports creusés

Kothon, cothon et ports creusés
Kothon, cothon et ports creusés
According to ancient literature, Kothon is the name given to the late Punic ports of Carthage, a particular type of vase and a type of harbour. Ancient definitions of a type of port seem to describe an artificially excavated basin, and this characteristic appears regularly within archaeological literature. However, if the ancient sources are examined closely, the association between Kothon and dug basin is not clear. This paper aims to analyse the sources related to the Kothon and to propose a new definition of the term.

Abstract

According to ancient literature, Kothon is the name given to the late Punic ports of Carthage, a particular type of vase and a type of harbour. Ancient definitions of a type of port seem to describe an artificially excavated basin, and this characteristic appears regularly within archaeological literature. However, if the ancient sources are examined closely, the association between Kothon and dug basin is not clear. This paper aims to analyse the sources related to the Kothon and to propose a new definition of the term.
