David Adan-Bayewitz showed that the Galilean village of Kefar Hananya was the principal supplier of kitchenware to the Galilee during the Roman period. He also observed that most of the Roman and early Byzantine cooking vessels of the central and southern Golan, although very similar or even indistinguishable in form from those made at Kefar Hananya, were produced in the Golan itself in several production centers. This paper aims to show the quantitative data obtained mainly from surveys regarding the distribution of Kefar Hananya types in the three different Roman districts of the Golan – from north to south – Paneas, Gaulanitis and Hippos.
The quantitative data enables a comparison between the districts themselves and between the Golan and the Galilee. The outcome shows the high intensity of Kefar Hananya types in the Gaulanitis and Hippos districts, with values similar to those of the Galilee and very different from the Paneas district.
