Popis This paper summarises the results of investigations of the Late Neolithic pottery paintings from the site Tell Arbid Abyad in NE Syria. The research was mainly focused on the composition of pigments but questions concerning production technology of pottery paintings have been handled as well. Ten painted pottery samples were studied – the paint and the shard fabric were examined separately. The original paint of the sample no. 1 was not preserved. The principal dying components of decoration of the other samples were iron compounds. Painting after firing the shard and re-firing was proved in some cases. The presence of minerals formed due to firing of calcium rich clay (gehlenite, diopside) document relatively high firing temperatures – above 850 – 900 °C. However, the glaze paints of some of the samples could not be preserved at the temperatures above 900 °C. The presented paper follows-up the investigation of petrographic, mineral and chemical composition of the pottery fabric from the same site and period (Gregerová et al. 2013).
