Abstract

The note deals with a luxury ware associated to the latest phases of the Early Historic urban site of Barikot, Swat (Pakistan). These phases are positively dated to mid-3nd century CE and associated to a Kushano-Sasanian cultural horizon. The luxury painted ware, denoted as ‘Fashion Ware’, was first found at Damkot (Swat), and collected from surface in Bajaur. A similar pottery was found in the past in later contexts in Rajasthan and Haryana.
