A total of 39 stamped amphora handles were found during excavations at Tel Beersheba between 1969 and 1976 by the Institute of Archaeology at Tel Aviv University under the direction of the late Yohanan Aharoni. Since the handles come from poorly stratified contexts, they cannot be considered as having any real stratigraphic value, but they do provide interesting information on the prosopography of the late Hellenistic period and for this reason are worth publication.
