Date Range

At Chalk the amphora was found in contexts deposited after c. AD 360, while the complete vessel from Caerleon came from a well which produced other pottery probably dating between AD 250-350 (Peacock & Williams, 1986). All of the Augst vessels date to the third century (Martin-Kilcher, 1994: 440).
