Ceramic Types

The ArchAIDE knowledge-base is a collection of search and retrieval tools that allows accessing the project reference database for types, decorations and stamps. Up to now, the knowledge-base contains types related to Terra Sigillata Italica, Hispanica, South Gaulish, and Roman Amphorae. 
Inserting a simple keyword in the search browser allows searching in all the text fields that describe each type. Clicking on the “Advanced” button, a complete form appears allowing to filter the results by all the relevant features of the specific entity. Clicking on the results allows complete access to all the information stored about a single type: description, chronology, origins and occurs, images, 3D models, references, equivalences.

ArchAIDE Types

Leptiminus 1

Amphorae
This amphora type was first noted by Opaiţ at Leptiminus, and was described is as having a "rim flat or slightly bevelled towards the inside top, horizontally flanged and thickened on the underside. The handles are attached just under the rim and on the junction of neck to the shoulder, being usually parallel to the neck. In section they are elliptical. The body is almost cylindrical, slightly swollen at the middle; it ends in a conical hollow spike" (Opaiţ, 2000). Opaiţ thought that it might be a local imitation of the Spanish amphora form Dressel 14 (2000). Though this amphora could perhaps be linked to the Carthaginian Early Amphora 4, proceeding the Romanization of the Punic type Cintas 312/Maña C2. More »
