When making use of this survey it should be remembered that all the items are unstratified and consequently can neither date the structures with which they may be associated nor by virtue of their archaeological provenance provide dating for each other.
Consequently the given dates are based, not on their archaeological context, but on parallels from elsewhere, dated collectors' items, or more frequently by unsupported opinions.
