Abstract The article discusses the archaeological excavation at Tel Dor in Israel, focusing on site's later economic and political activities with several other cultures including the Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Macedonians and Romans from the Assyrian period up to the 3rd century CE. The authors address issues of acculturation and cultural contact, a gap in administrative evidence in the 6th century BC, and the domestic architectural remains. Topics include fragments of terracotta objects that formed a gorgon's head, a popular motif in Greek art that could have been related to a Phoenician cult, various jars and Greek ceramic imports found at the site, and an updated urban plan dating to the 5th century BC. The site's Hellenism is also discussed.
