The Rough Cilicia Survey Project conducted ceramics grab collections at Antiochia ad Cragum in 1997. Designated collection areas with high sherd concentrations, approximately 100 m square, were selected for inspection. Some 16 collection areas were inspected. All diagnostic sherds were collected by delegated team members and brought together where Rauh triaged the collection. Field director, Richard Blanton, recorded 1 GPS coordinate for each collection area. Sherds were bagged and tagged and brought back to the project lab where they were washed and coded. Pottery specialists Richard Rothaus and Kathleen Slane later processed all sherds and created the chronotype database. Damaged, difficult to read sherds were returned to the field. Diagnostic sherds were photographed as context groups, bagged and stored. Rauh and Dillon reinspected all surviving sherds at the Alanya Archaeological Museum in 2014. All surviving sherds were measured, Munselled, described, and photographed.
