Abstract :
Some revisions are offered to the data of the Al Mina excavation in the light of mistakes revealed in the original plans, with some effect on the interpretation of finds. Any Phoenician role at the site is discounted, in the absence of any material evidence for it, and outdated pro-Phoenician prejudices are briefly discussed in the light of more recent research into Phoenician history, the sources of ‘Orientalising’ in Greece and identity of sources for pottery and other objects.
