Following their settlement in the Levantine coast at the beginning of 12 century BCE, the Philistines began to produce a local variant of the Mycenaean pottery known as "Mycenaean IIIC1B". Initially, this was quite simple in its designs and was largely confined to open vessels, bowls, and kraters. This sherd belongs to this early style. 12th to 11th century BCE. From Beth Shemesh (Beit Shemesh), modern-day Israel. (The British Museum, London)
