This article presents a fragment of a late Submycenaean/early Protogeometric wavy-band deep bowl found at the Philistine site of Tell es-Safi/Gath, Israel. Produced in the Argolid, this item appears to be, as of now, the earliest Iron Age Greek import to the Levant. This unique find presents an opportunity to review some problems relating to the chronological correlation between the Aegean and the Levant in the early 1st millennium BC, as well as the cultural contacts in the eastern Mediterranean during this period.
