Investigations on 52 glazed samples (40 of them are examples of Byzantine-Black Sea ware) by X-ray microprobe technique allowed to make conclusions about the difference of the Byzantine pottery composition (and its successor on North Black Sea Coast and the Golden Horde traditions) composition from the West-Mediterranean wares (Spanish-Italian), in particular for the 15th century. One of the results of these investigations is the discovery of the downward trend rate of lead oxide in the Byzantine and Black Sea glazes during the 12th—15th centuries, refuting earlier formulated hypotheses about the growth of the share of lead materials in “Chersonesus” glaze recipe. The author also notes the lack of reliable data on glazed pottery production in medieval Cherson.
