This paper deals with the distribution, qualities and particular fea-tures of seven metal artefacts from western Greece (modern southern Epirus and Aetoloacarnania), dating from the late 6th or the early 7th through to the 10th century. This material is discussed in the context of contemporary and later evidence so as to identify traces of industrial features of Byzantine settlement. The scarcity and the rather conventional nature of known archaeological evidence do not speak for a ourishing industry of metalwork in the area dur-ing the 7th-10th centuries. However, textual evidence dating from the same period, as well as later archaeological evidence, seems to support the development of a metalwork tradition in northern and western Greece during the Middle Byzantine period.
