(Hebrew, pp. 131–134; English summary, p. 95*)
Keywords: Carmel, glass, typology
More than 1000 fragments of glass vessels were found in the excavation along the eastern fringes of Tel Shiqmona, of which c. 625 were identified. All the vessels were free-blown and produced from colorless, bluish green and greenish glass. The vessels include bowls, lamps, cups and goblets, a jar and bottles. They are of types that are
well-known in Israel during the Late Roman and Byzantine periods. Also found were small fragments of round windowpanes and glass tesserae, probably used in a wall mosaic.
