Oldest Intact Shipwreck Discovered in the Black Sea
The uneven overage with only five articles treating Georgian and Turkish sites as opposed to thirteen devoted to west coast sites and fifteen to north coast sites is largely the result of two facts: the longer and richer traditions of archaeological and historical scholarship on the Greek colonies of the west and north coasts and the treatment of the most of the major Black Sea cities and sites in Ancient Greek Colonies in the Black Sea1.
As a result, the volumes' contents are divided between articles on cities such as Kallatis, Tomis, and Tyras, which are intended to fill in gaps in the earlier volumes, and more specialized articles dealing with what is essentially a random selection of topics linked by no common themes.

This is not to deny, however, that there is much of interest in these volumes. First and foremost is the sheer mass of archaeological data that is made available in these articles, most of which consist of brief historical introductions and conclusions between which are sandwiched detailed--sometimes item-by-item--summaries of archaeological finds and sites.
Also valuable are articles that provide either detailed accounts of recent excavations of important sites such as, for example, S. Ostroverkhov, "Achilles on the Island of Leuke" and V. Gorontcharovsky,"Pluraton: A Fortress of 1strd centuries AD on the Euopean Kimmerian Bosporos" or surveys of the current state of scholarship on topics related to trade between the Mediterranean and Pontic regions such as N. Gavrilyuk, "Greek Imports in Scythia" and J. Finally, reflecting current scholarship, there is a welcome change of emphasis from the Archaic period that was typical of early 20th century scholarship to the Classical, Hellenistic, and Roman Imperial periods in the historical summaries and especially in the articles on the Roman period at Olbia and Chersonesus and other sites.
Unfortunately, these volumes also have serious weaknesses that are in many ways a reflex of the empiricism that is their great virtue.
The Greek merchant vessel similar to those found on ancient pottery was carbon dated to 400 B.C.
So, while literary sources are diligently collected and cited, they are largely taken at face value with little or no critical evaluation. Likewise, while relations between Greeks and non-Greeks are an important theme in numerous articles, analysis generally is limited to discriminating between Greek and native remains--mainly funerary and ceramic--and identifying generalized "influences" with little regard for the social and cultural contexts in which those "influences" occurred.
Similarly, relations between Greek cities--particularly economic relations--receive considerable attention. Interpretation tends to be simplistic, however, with the geographical and chronological distribution of coin finds and amphora types being used to reconstruct the historical development of trade relations between cities with little attempt to identify the reasons behind the distribution patterns perceived in the archaeological record.
Finally, and most seriously, just as was true of its predecessor, the English of many articles is marred by numerous grammatical and syntactical errors that render many passages difficult to understand. As a result, while these volumes will provide scholars already familiar with the history and archaeology of the Black Sea with a treasure trove of useful data, the need for an up-to-date vade mecum to the field that would replace Minns' great work still remains.
