[1301, 1600]
• Thessaloniki:
Cemetery near the site of an earlier church preceding the modern church of SS Constantine and Helena (late Byzantine and early post Byzantine periods). Graves from the courtyard of the Galerian rotunda later transformed into S. George church (Byzantine Period and later, until 1591):
– glass bottles from the graves: flat base, oval, ribbed body, spindle-shaped neck with two bulges (one at the bottom and one at the transition to the cup-like rim); deep blue, olive green, colourless glass.

• Patras:
Cemetery (late Byzantine) within the ruins of a middle Byzantine church:
– one bottle (description see above) with painted geometric decoration (context: end of the 14th - first half of the 15th century).

• Athens:
Cemeteries of three churches: Ayii Asomatoi, Ayios Georgios Alexandrinos, Ayios Thomas:
– bottles (description see above) - some of them have painted geometric decoration (contexts: from the 13th to the 17th century).

– painted geometric decoration on some bottles - checkerboard-like motif on colourless and yellow (today, almost white) fields.

• “Gagiana” - Venetian ship, sailing from Venice to Constantinople, sunk in 1583 in the Adriatic Sea (Croatian coast):
– some 20 necks identical to the Tessaloniki-Patras-Athens group of bottles.

• Iconographical sources: Icon of St Anastasia Pharmacolytria (Corfu, early 16th century).
