Amphorae from Caronia and Caronia Marina, Provincia di Messina, Sicily – Thin-Section analyses

Forskningsoutput: Kapitel i bok/rapport/Conference proceedingKapitel samlingsverk

Sammanfattning

The Amphorae was a common container for transportation of especially liquid goods in the Greco-Roman world. There are several known production sites of these vessels around the Mediterranean. The shapes of the different amphorae have been amply described and grouped according to different systems. There has also been several works describing the fabric of the vessels and also attempts to link vessels to clay quarries (provenance) based on fabric analyses.
To what extent may an analysis of ceramic thin-sections add information to the question of work-shops and production sites? In this small investigation the analyses were made without any prior knowledge as to type of amphora, find location and assumed production area. The results have to be weighted in relation to the variables mentioned above and not least be put in relation to the probable dating of the finds.
