Several samples of the two important archaeological areas of eastern Sicily, Messina in north-eastern Sicily, and Gela and Agrigento in central-southern Sicily, were analysed by optical analysis under a polarized light microscope, XRD, FT-IR, XRF, ICP-MS and ICPOES. Petrographic and chemical data processing allowed to characterise pottery fabrics of Greek colonies in Sicily and to identify the principal elements that distinguish the different local productions (Messina, Gela and Agrigento) between them and from those imported (Greece).
