Gauloise 1 similis in Verulamium White Ware



Distinctive Features

This has a flaring, cup-shaped rim and so can be classified as being modelled on the Gauloise 1 form. This vessel has a large clear stamp of SENECIONIS on the neck, while a second stamp, running vertically on neck, from ER523 has not yet been interpreted.

Date Range

Flavian to Hadrianic.
Search: [1st century AD] [2nd century AD]

Origin

Various sites in and around London and Verulamium. Two neighbouring sites in London (30 Gresham Street, GST00; 2-12 Gresham Street, GSM97) have produced particularly large assemblages. Amphorae were produced at least two kiln sites: Brockley Hill, on the east side of Watling Street (1972 excavations, site A; Castle 1974), and Moorgate, on the northern margins of Londinium (Seeley forthcoming). Not so far recorded outside London or the kiln sites [check]. However, Verulamium Region pottery (especially mortaria ) has a wide distribution in Britain and it is likely that examples will be recognised very soon.
