Upload the image of your sherd in the box on the left and then start searching using the form on the right. If you identify the workshop check it and assign it a probability indicator. Advanced search form would help you filter the results.
For name stamps you may use part of a name in "keyword" or "workshop" field or use a special wildcards allowing to define a text pattern. To use this feature start the string with the hash character (#) and then write your string intermingling the "%" character for one or more unknown characters and the "_" character for a single unknown character. Examples of patterns may be:
- #%IO (any stamp terminating with "IO" i.e. LVCRIO or QVARTIO)
- #IV__V% (i.e. IVNIVS, D. IVNIVS EPI(), IVSCV(LVS), ...)
