Potsherd: Atlas of Roman Pottery

Camulodunum 189 ('carrot') amphoras

A small amphora with a conical 'carrot'-shaped body, with horizontal ribbing on the outer surface and two small handles, in a red-brown sandy ware. The type was produced in the eastern Mediterranean, perhaps Egypt or Palestine, and widely distributed around the Mediterranean and across the north-west provinces during the 1st century AD.
