This paper approaches problems of dating and residuality in a similar manner to that of entry no. 1200, by presenting a series of 'case studies'. In the first set of examples, from excavations at Place J Formigé at Fréjus, the contents of three rooms, all of which were apparently destroyed in a single conflagration, are described: the reception room and bedroom contained only 1st century samian, while the kitchen contained North African red slip ware, including lids matched to bowls, probably dating to not before the 3rd century. Similar situations are described using material from Aix-en-Provence, illustrations and quantification, but also by logical hypotheses and their contemporary justification.
