This fine decorated pottery takes its name from the modern name of Tell Atchana, Alalakh. It was defined by the excavator Sir L. Woolley as a locally produced variant of the so-called "Nuzi Ware", a similarly fine and elaborated decorated pottery first recognized at the site of Nuzi in Iraq. Characteristic of the Atchana ware are the floral designs which are unmatched in the Nuzi ware. From Levels III-II, Tell Atchana, Hatay, modern-day Turkey. Late Bronze age, circa 1370-1270 BCE. (The British Museum, London)
