pottery: Archaic Greek Pottery data

Description Usage Format Details Source References Examples

Description

The Archaic Greek Pottery data set contains data on fragments of Greek pottery which were classified into two groups according to their origin: Attic or Eritrean. Six chemical variables, metallic oxide constituents, were measured: Si, Al, Fe, Ca and Ti. The main data set consists of 13 Attic objects and 14 Eritrean ones. There is a separate data set with 13 observations which can be used as a test data set. It consists of 4 observations classified as "probably Attic" and the remaining 9 as "probably Eritrean".

Details

The Archaic Greek Pottery data set was first published by Stern and Descoeudres (1977) and later reproduced in Cooper and Weeks (1983) for illustration of linear discriminant analisys. The data set was used by Pires and Branco (2010) for illustration of their projection pursuit approach to linear discriminant analysis.
