Abstract :
In 2013, seven inscribed pottery sherds belonging to a ceramic dish were found during the archaeological excavations of the makellon of Sagalassos, SW Anatolia. The ancient Greek texts on these sherds formed the initial reason for this contribution. The consideration of their meaning and their find context have led to further reflections on the functioning of the makellon as a slaughterhouse/butchery in late antiquity, the role of large-scale dining events at Sagalassos and local practices at waste management.
