Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) are persistent identifiers which can be used to consistently and accurately reference digital objects and/or content. The DOIs provide a way for the ADS resources to be cited in a similar fashion to traditional scholarly materials. More information on DOIs at the ADS can be found on our help page.
DOIs should be the last element in a citation irrespective of the format used. The DOI citation should begin with "doi:" in lowercase followed by the DOI with no spaces between the ":" and the DOI.
DOIs can also be cited as a persistent link from another Web page. This is done by appending the DOI Resolver with the DOI. This would look like:
However, if it is possible it is best to hide the URL in the href property of the <a> tag and have the link text be of the form doi:10.5284/1028192. The HTML for this would look like:
University of Southampton (2014) Roman Amphorae: a digital resource [data-set]. York: Archaeology Data Service [distributor] (doi:10.5284/1028192)
Distinctive FeaturesThis is a cylindrical amphora with long bifid handles (composed of two rods), with small beaded lip and distinct carinated shoulder. Occasionally it is stamped on the handles.
Date RangeEarliest date: Augustan-Tiberian period at Astorga (Carreras Monfort & Berni, 2003)
Latest date: late first and early second centuries AD.
Search: [1st century AD] [2nd century AD]
OriginThis type was produced in the Guadalquivir valley of southern Spain, since it shares the same fabric as other Baetican amphorae such as the Dressel 20. Only one workshop has been identified at Posadas (Seville), with a stamped bifid handle which is identical to that of a well-known Dressel 20 stamp. This type was also produced in the coastal areas of Baetica with a different fabric in places such as Lomba de Ceres (Granada), El Rinconcillo or Guadarranque (Cádiz)

DistributionIt is supposed to have a widespread distribution in the western provinces but in small numbers. However only a few reports, such as those of Colchester (Williams, 1985) and Astorga (Carreras Monfort & Berni, 2003), refer to a Dressel 2-4 with Guadalquivir valley fabric.
