Typology
Description There is a small collection of vessels in micaceous fabrics from unpublished excavations at Mer (reference ZM 183), probably from a context of Augustan-Tiberian date. There are three jars of form C262 in TF1 and three vessels in finer wheel thrown wares. Two of these are jars similar to C102 and the third is a more open bowl, also with a moulded rim. The finer ware has not been examined petrologically, but is probably TF2.
Ferdière 1972
