I just found this

Quote:
Though Akhet-Aten was occupied for only a handful of years by the Egyptians, there have also been monastic settlements and roman camps, and part of the site is still unexcavated beneath modern cultivation closer to the nile.

the amarna project website used to have (and may still have) a spreadsheet of finds from Amarna. These date to the excavations from the 1920s.

There are several mentions of Roman era artefacts. This includes some tombs and homes if I remember correctly.

DW I found the databases Smile
Quote:

Column Q: Date (if non-Eighteenth Dynasty)
In addition to Eighteenth Dynasty objects, a number of objects of other dates appear in the
corpus, particularly of the Roman period. The dates provided by the excavators have been
followed: the accuracy of these has not been confirmed.


Was this a major roman city hidden below the sands?

Roman Glass

Jane Faiers
A relatively small, but varied, collection of Roman glassware was recovered from the Kom el-Nana monastery complex. This was recorded between 2003 and 2006, and a monograph on the work, entitled 'Late Roman glassware and pottery at Amarna and related studiesí, is now in preparation.

The vessel forms are surprisingly varied with some showing extreme delicacy in their making and decoration. The colours of the glass ranged from a very dark blue through light blue and shades of green, sea-green, brown, pale-yellow and clear. Applied decoration was mainly in shades of blue, with one beaker sherd having red streaks included as the glass was blown.

Forms include dishes, bowls, platters and goblets, flagons, flasks, lamp bases and one part of a bangle. No complete form has so far been found. The glass lamps possibly would have fitted into a form of chandelier made of iron.

Apart from the bangle, which was of moulded glass, all other identified pieces were of blown glass.

A selection of the glassware is illustrated below.








Im finding more Smile

They have really changed the Amarna Project website.
There used to be a spreadsheet called the "small finds database". This is now no longer available. It is mentioned that the information will at some point be available again (perhaps in a slightly different format?).

But there are indeed some nice pages now about the Roman era finds.
I have no idea how large the settlement was.

A small part of the North Suburb (T34.3) had been built over in the Late Roman Period by a well-constructed brick tower and ancillary structures that might have been a guard tower, perhaps connected with a monastery. The surrounding area had also served as a cemetery of the same period.

Thanks for finding small finds database for me conorp.

It is an intriguing set of data. I spent many an hour just trying to find info in there.
