Abstract

Abstract This article will address pottery inscriptions found in an archaeological city of Aktobe, located at the middle reaches of the river Chu. Many inscriptions found on ceramics, dating to the IX-XI centuries, were found some rooms of a dwelling excavated in 2008 in the Shakhristan section of the medeival city (35 m X 10 m excavation block). The inscriptions were found on vessel bodies, necks, bases, or handles. In spite of the fact that inscriptions are often written vertically or horizontally, they are very similar. Our analysis demonstrates different styles and chronological periods for the inscribed ceramic vessels. Descriptions, photographs, and drawings of the inscribed vessels are presented here.
