The Rough Cilicia Survey Project conducted ceramics grab collections at Laertes on the Cebel Ires Mt. in 1996, after team members witnessed disturbances at the site. The following year the project relocated to Gazipasha and did little more than revisit the site in following years. One such visit in 1998 resulted in a limited recollect of significant diagnostic sherds. During the work conducted at Laertes in 1996, designated areas with high sherd concentrations, approximately 100m square, were identified by field directors Blanton and Rauh for inspection. Inspections were conducted principally by Mette Korsholm and Betul Sahin. Some 12 collection areas were inspected. Diagnostic sherds were collected, triaged on site, bagged and tagged and brought back to the project lab where they were washed and coded. Sherds were read by Richard Rothaus and Kathleen Slane in 1997. Unreadable sherds were returned to the field. Diagnostic sherds were photographed as groups, and stored as contexts. All surviving sherds were inspected by Rauh and Matthew Dillon at the Alanya Archaeological Museum in 2014. Each sherd was measured, described, Munselled, and photographed individually.
