Description The paper is focused on the distribution of strainers/sieves in the Khabur Valley during the Late Neolithic and Chalcolithic period. The contribution tries to substantiate the rare occurrence of this vessel type within the ceramic assemblages of sites in the named area by taking to graphs and tables. On the basis of the evidence avenues are suggested for a further research of this functional type of Middle East pottery.
