The painted pottery of the first half of the Early Bronze Age in Luristan (Pusht-i Kuh and Pish-i Kuh) is rather badly documented. Most information comes from grave-contexts, although on the whole the information is limited. Two main categories are to be distinguished: a bichrome/polychrome as well as a monochrome group. There are distinct regions with a different pottery tradition. Evidence from Susa, Godin Tepe and other sites is included, as well as information provided by Mesopotamian sites. An attempt is being made to outline the regional diversity and a chronology is proposed.
