Typology Cam 262
Description Petit illustrates a C262 jar from an Augustan group, described as hand-made with a micaceous zone on the rim and shoulder. Assemblages of similar date held by the Direction Régionale des Antiquités Historiques include further jars of form C262; most are wheel-thrown with a micaceous slip on the rim and shoulder.

Tuffreau-Libre (in Kruta, Bémont, Tuffreau-Libre 19##) illustrates a rim-sherd from an open bowl in a micaceous fabric from an Augustan-Tiberian group, citing Ferdière's type Besançon as a possible parallel.

Jobelot and Vermeersch (1991) illustrate assemblages of le type Besançon from two sites in Paris and present the results of thin-section analysis.
