From April II to May 1, 1980 I had the opportunity to study the ancient glass vessels on exhibit it the Bölge Museum at Adana. After having verified the inventory numbers of circa one hundred vessels which I sketched in the summer of 1979, I drew and described all remaining vessels on display, excepting one bowl of reticella glass and sixteen core-glass vessels of the Greek and Hellenistic periods. Wherever it was possible, the inventory or acquisition numbers were identified, including those of the core-glass vessels. I did not study the numerous glass beads, bracelets and other objects in the museum.
