Its westward extension reaches the Aegean caost and the off-shore islands, ie. Lesbos, Chios. The Gediz (Hermos) valley might define the immediate southern boundaries, while in the North the celebrated site of Hisarlik, better known as Troy, might well be a part of this inland culture Condition: Almost invisible reattachment of piece of the handle and some minor chips to the rim, othervise choice and intact.
