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).
