The Rough Cilicia Survey Project conducted ceramics grab collections at Iotape (Aytap) in 1996. Designated areas with high sherd concentrations, approximately 100m square, were identified by field directors Blanton and Rauh for inspection. Four collection areas were inspected. Inspections were conducted principally by Mette Korsholm and students. Diagnostic sherds were collected, 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.
