Abstract:

In the archaeological research that carried out in the last decades inside the Roman forts of Dacia (Inferior) Malvensis there were discovered some fragments of terra sigillata vessels. In this article, we present a small group of this kind of pottery found in the Central Fort of Romula and the castrum from Castra Traiana. The archaeological excavations belong to Cristian Vlădescu, Romeo Avram and Lucian Amon. Types of vessels The present terra sigillata fragments belong to Dragendorf 37 (nos. 3-4, 6-8) and Dragendorf 46 (nos. 1-2). The rest of the fragments are from the middle part of the vessels that cannot be certainly identified as shape. Pottery workshops Lezoux group (nos. 1-6, 9) Some vessels made in this group are of Dragendorf 37 type and they have been decorated in Paternus II (nos. 4), Paternus II-III (no. 3) and Cinnamus (no. 5) styles. Other ones could be produced at Martres-de-Veyre (nos. 1-2). The terra sigillata workshops from Martres-de-Veyre were dated in the 2nd century AD, and those with Cinnamus, Paternus II and Paternus II-III decoration were produced between 140 and 195 AD. Rheinzabern group (nos. 7-8, 10-12) Some fragments belong to Dragendorf 37 type (nos. 7-8). The other ones are from the middle part of the vessels that cannot be certainly identified as shape. One of these belongs to Comitialis II decoration style (no. 10), the other one to Ianuarius II style (no. 11). First style was used in the Antonin Period, the second between the reigns of Antoninus Pius and Marcus Aurelius. The latest chronology of Rheinzabern workshops group is considered to be between 145 and 265 AD.
