heal.abstract The aim of the present work is the application of the non destructive techniques of Fiber Optics Microscopy (FOM) and Environmental Scanning Electron Microscopy with Energy Dispersive X-Ray Analysis (ESEM-EDX), for the characterization of decorated colored glass objects, with relation to the manufacturing technique. All the glasses are in the form of small fragments, which have come to light at archaeological excavations in the area of Dodecanese in Greece and are dated at a period between the 5th and 4th century BC. Today they belong to the National Archaeological Museum of Athens. The great historical value of the glass fragments did not allow any sampling or even any surface treatment. Therefore, for the microscopic observation of their manufacturing technique and the elemental compositional analysis, the FOM and ESEM-EDX non destructive techniques were used. The compositional data obtained led to significant results on the level of the adopted glass technology, suggesting an identification of the main coloring agents used for the production of the glass objects colorations: Pb and Sb are found to be the responsible colorants for the opaque yellow decorations, while only Sb for the white ones. The green coloration is attributed to high Fe content. Co is indicated as the responsible coloring agent for blue glass. In this work, the results obtained from the microscopic examination provided significant information on the level of the employed glass manufacturing technique used, allowing us to assume that the core-forming was the main technique used for the production of the glass artifacts. © 2012 Taylor & Francis Group, London. en
