Abstract

The collaboration between Sovraintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali and Centre Camille Jullian allowed the Dressel 26 amphora from Castro Pretorio in Rome to be characterised in detail. Systematic studies on this container, identified by H. Dressel in 1879, have not been carried out yet. Only recently a few hypotheses on epigraphy, content and provenance of amphorae Dressel 26 have been proposed. The results of our research, based on the combination of archaeological and petrographic data, point to a possible origin from North Africa and neither from Eastern Sicily or Southern Italy, as previously suggested.
