An interesting collection of early Roman material from Salzburg. There is a substantial amount of Italian samian, but also other early fine wares similar to types found in the earliest levels in Britain. See also entry no. 632, for a more extensive collection of similarly dated material.
Location: Salzburger Museum

Glazed wares from north of the Danube, including vessels from East Germany, Poland and Austria, but mostly from modern Czechoslovakia. The illustrations consist of a single plate showing twelve scyphoi (two-handled bowls), mostly with barbotine-type decoration, although some apparently have moulded decoration while two are rouletted and one is stamped with ovolos while another has a more abstract stamped decoration similar to that found on Oxfordshire-ware bowls. Why the range of forms is so limited is a matter of considerable interest. Similar forms, with a similarly limited range, are also known to have made at Tarsus and Smyrna in Asia Minor, but these clearly contrast with the ranges represented in Central Gaul and in Pannonia (see entry no. 1206).

A brief study of a series of stamped Italian-type sigillata, found at Magdalensberg. The earliest of these are from Padana, rather than Arezzo, although the comparative illustrations show the obvious links of the later Padana potters with the latter industry, if not actual movement of potters. A useful addendum to the Conspectus (JRPS 4, entry no. 961).

The paper relates finds of South Gaulish samian to the history of a large number of sites on the German and Raetian frontier. The nature of the problem is shown in fig 1 (page 233) where a series of 'fixed' dates are given. A lot of these are dependant upon coin evidence although the British elements in this catalogue demonstrate that this is not to be taken entirely at face value - Inchtuthil, for instance, would be dated to the mid 80s with or without its coin evidence. Of particular interest is the analysis of the proportions of forms 29 and 37 on various sites and the site by site commentary which gives an overview of the south Gaulish samian from each site. The South Gaulish samian from Okarben is catalogued and illustrated. See JRPS 4, entry 1006, for a critique of P's paper.
