Distinctive Features

This is a curious amphora form that appears to be a hybrid between the Baetican type Dressel 20 and the flat-based Gauloise 4. It has a large downturned rim, short arched handles, a broad globular body with a little decoration near the bottom and a basal wart.

Date Range

Uncertain, but possibly second century AD.
Search: [2nd century AD]


As far as we know this amphora is unparalleled and may well be a local East Anglian product, although possible similar vessels in Verulamium Region White Ware are known from Brockley Hill and Wilcote, Oxfordshire (Seeley, pers. comm).
