Abstract

Recent studies of several levels of harbor and urban rubbish dumps in Arles have provided rich documentation on trade in this harbor city during the 2nd and 3rd c. AD. This period is marked particularly by an increase in African products transported in amphorae. The goal of this note is to present new data on some amphora types, as yet undocumented in Gaul : Schöne-Mau XXXV and «pseudo-Dr. 2/ 4», Ostia XXIII, Carthage Early Amphora 4 and Leptiminus II. Moreover, an archaeometric study provides some specific data on the African origins of these unheralded amphorae.
L’étude récente de plusieurs dépotoirs portuaires et urbains à Arles a livré une abondante documentation sur les échanges dans ce port au cours des iie et iiie siècles. Cette période est notamment marquée par l’essor du commerce des produits africains transportés en amphores. L’objectif de cette note est de présenter de nouvelles données sur quelques types de conteneurs encore peu documentés en Gaule : Schöne-Mau XXXV et «pseudo-Dr. 2/ 4», Ostia XXIII, Carthage Early Amphora IV et Leptiminus II. Une étude archéométrique apporte en outre des précisions sur la provenance de ces amphores méconnues au sein de l’aire africaine.
