In the paper the author attempts to compile a corpus of finds of the Oriental and Byzantine pottery in the territory of Belarus, which are represented by the following types: among the Iranian pottery — luster painted pottery and “minai” pottery; among the Syrian pottery — luster painted pottery and “lakabi” pottery and technologically similar types; among the Golden Horde pottery — composite white frit pottery with relief modeling of the surface and polychrome underglaze painting; composite white frit beads with turquoise glaze; among the Byzantine pottery — pottery with underglaze five-color painting; “sgraffito” pottery and simpler specimens covered with engobe and glaze, as well as single finds of other types of Middle Eastern glazed pottery. Most of the Oriental and Byzantine pottery found during excavations of the Belarusian towns belong to the luxury goods or objects of a rather high artistic level, and may be associated with the culture of the elite and wealthy townspeople. The paper also considers the appearance causes of the Oriental and Byzantine glazed pottery in the medieval towns of Belarus, routes and means of its delivery.

Keywords: Belarus, mediaeval towns, Byzantine glazed pottery, Syrian glazed pottery, Iranian glazed pottery, Golden Horde glazed pottery, import, trade, noneconomic ways
