The Rough Cilicia Survey Project conducted ceramics grab collections at Nephelion (Nephelis, Muzkent) in 1997. Designated areas with high sherd concentrations, approximately 100m square, were identified by field directors Blanton and Rauh for inspection. Inspections were conducted by team members, Rauh, Paige Rothaus, and Betul Sahin. 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 later read by Richard Rothaus and Kathleen Slane. 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.
