Typology bowls Class 1 Class 2 Cam 262
Description Roanne is one of the most important sites for our understanding of the early history of TF1. There are large numbers of jars of class 1 and 2 and C262 from first century BC levels, associated with a wide range of imports and local wares. Bessou's 1976 publication, currently one of the largest published assemblages from the site, will shortly be superceded by a new study of the material based largely on the material from Saint-Paul.
