Hellenistic cylindrical and truncated cone clay beakers with a flattened rim, made of rough clay, have been found in settlements and necropoleis of Tarquinia and Ager Tarquiniensis (Viterbo, Tuscania, Montefiascone, Norchia, Castel d'Asso, Musarna, Ferento, Magugnano, Acquarossa-San Cataldo), and sporadically in Vulci, Sovana and in other sites such as Ampurias. They are characterized by an hard red, grainy clay sometimes with, a thin matte paint on the surface. From the second century B.C., the shape seems to continue over time at least until the age of Augustus. Nevertheless it evolves: the clay becomes finer, the surfaces smoother and the walls thinner. In this study we intend to analyze this shape, focusing on the older phase of production (II century B.C.), to better understand the characteristics, function, chronology, places of production and distribution. It will also seek to verify the presence of this pottery shape in similar Hellenistic productions of the Mediterranean Basin.

Abstract

Hellenistic cylindrical and truncated cone clay beakers with a flattened rim, made of rough clay, have been found in settlements and necropoleis of Tarquinia and Ager Tarquiniensis (Viterbo, Tuscania, Montefiascone, Norchia, Castel d'Asso, Musarna, Ferento, Magugnano, Acquarossa-San Cataldo), and sporadically in Vulci, Sovana and in other sites such as Ampurias. They are characterized by an hard red, grainy clay sometimes with, a thin matte paint on the surface. From the second century B.C., the shape seems to continue over time at least until the age of Augustus. Nevertheless it evolves: the clay becomes finer, the surfaces smoother and the walls thinner. In this study we intend to analyze this shape, focusing on the older phase of production (II century B.C.), to better understand the characteristics, function, chronology, places of production and distribution. It will also seek to verify the presence of this pottery shape in similar Hellenistic productions of the Mediterranean Basin.
