The supply of campanian-made sigillata to the city of Pompeii

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Pompeii is an important temporal reference in the study of Roman ceramics, yet until now the origins of red slip tableware or sigillata found in the city have largely been classified by visual evaluations of the pottery. This investigation employs petrographic and elemental analyses to establish the provenance of sigillata found in two pre-ad 79 contexts of Pompeii. In contrast to previous studies, the results suggest that pottery workshops in the vicinity of Somma-Vesuvius played a vital role in the supply of sigillata to the city.
