Naturally, the dishes were actively used by all peoples on the territory of the ancient Mediterranean. Ceramic tableware is the most common type. The technique of different peoples was somewhat different, but retained the same functionality. In Greece, dishes were often painted. But for example, glassware was most common in the Roman Empire.
