Title: Triangle-Festoon Ware Reconsidered
Author(s): DYSON, Robert H. Jr.
Journal: Iranica Antiqua
Volume: 34 Date: 1999
The author proposes a major revision of the dating of Triangle Ware at Hasanlu from Period IIIB to IIIA. Thus, a major problem in the coordination of materials is simplified and we are freer in the future to consider directions of movement, and possibly earlier dating at some other location. Moving the 'Classic' Triangle Ware into the Achaemenid period confirms the relative chronology long advocated for the Azerbaijan area, as well as that for the Van area to the north, and to the south at Jameh Shuran and Baba Jan. Triangle Ware should then be followed by Festoon Ware with the latter occurring largely in the following Early and Middle Parthian periods to the end of the first millennium B.C. That in the north later Parthian Painted Ware is stylistically distinct from the Hasanlu IIIA Achaemenid Triangle Ware is made abundantly clear from the Meshkin Shahr Survey northeast of the Hasanlu-Bukan area.
