See also entry no. 650. The discovery of a new samian production centre, confirmed by excavations in 1986 and by analyses of the fabrics of the vessels found, must count as a momentous event in Roman pottery studies. This is an extremely detailed publication of the results of several years' study of the evidence, which only became conclusive relatively recently, although Brive can now become the legitimate source of a considerable number of vessels
elsewhere identified as "?La Graufesenque, unusual style". The report includes a large number of figure-types, motifs, and examples of moulds and mould-decorated sherds and vessels, as well as the results of a wide range of technical analyses, and general conclusions. It is fortunate that such an important occurrence has been published so quickly, and so competently.

This is a collection of twenty-one papers presented at a Round Table held at Metz on October 4th-6th, 1990. These probably all deserve separate Bibliography entries, but for JRPS 5 there is space and time only for the following summary of titles (with the exception of the paper by A P Fitzpatrick, which we include as entry no. 1223): The volume is divided into three sections, entitled 'Production, new evidence', "The distribution of amphorae', and 'Databanks and analyses', and the first two of these are followed by sections of general debate (tape-recorded at the meeting), on pp 113-5 and 207-218, respectively. A number of the individual papers are also followed by transcripts of the discussions which followed their presentation. Laubenheimer, F, with Gébara, C & Béraud, I, 'Production d'amphores a Fréjus', 15-24. With an appendix by M Picon. See also entry no. 1220, and the second paper by the same authors in the same volume, below. A considerable range of types was produced at Fréjus, including a Dr 16 found at Winchester Palace in London, with painted inscription indicating that it contained wine (Liquamen Excellens) from Antibes - but the analyses by M Picon show the vessel was probably made at Fréjus.
   Meffre, J-C &: p, 'L'atelier augustéen d'amphores et de céramiques de Sainte-Cécile-les Vignes (Vaucluse)', 25-35. Situated between Orange and Vaison-la-Romaine, this site produced imitations of Dr 2-4 and of Pascual 1, and Gauloise 2 and Gauloise 10 amphorae.
   Dangréaux, B, Desbat, A, Picon, M & Schmitt, A, 'La production d'amphores à Lyon', 37-50. With an appendix on scientific analyses. This is an updating of JRPS 4, entry no. 958.
   Martin-Kilcher, S, 'La fabrication d'amphores vinaires Dressel 2-4 a Augusta Rauricorum (Augst, Suisse) et le début de la viticulture au Nord des Alpes', 51-8. Augst produced its own versions of Dr 2-4, not dissimilar from those made at Mougon (Indre-et-Loire) and at Brockley Hill.
       Baudoux, J, 'Production d'amphores dans 1'Est de la Gaule', 59-69. Several East Gaulish production centres, including Rheinzabern, seem to have produced either imitations of Dr 20 amphorae, globular Dr 20-like amphorae with flat bottoms, or Gaulish-type amphorae. The Rheinzabern Dr 20 imitations are stamped with names which also appear on samian from the site. This paper provoked a lengthy discussion on the organisation of pottery workshops in Gaul. Schallmayer, E, 'Production d'amphores en Germanie Supérieure?', 71-4. Similar types to those of the previous paper, Walldurn, on the limes.
   Laubenheimer, F & Lequoy, M-C, 'Les amphores Gauloise 12 de Normandie. Le matériel de la nécropole de Vatteville-la Rue', 75-92. With an appendix by F Formenti. This is a substantial updating of what is known of Gauloise 12s, small reeded-rimmed amphorae from Normandie. The distribution map shows almost as many points in Britain as in northern Gaul.
   Berthault, F, 'Production d'amphores dans la région bordelaise', 93-100. With appendices by M Picon & A Desbat, by C Latouche & N Maillet, by J-C Pons and by J Dubreuilh. Flat-bottomed amphorae from the Bordeaux region; see also entry nos. 1182 & 1183. Aranegui, C & Gisbert, J-A, 'Les amphores à fond plat de la Péninsule ibérique', 101-111. Gauloise 4-like flat-bottomed amphorae from the east coast of Spain, south of Valencia. These have fairly narrow bases, like the Narbonnaise/South Gaulish versions, and unlike more northerly types.
   Laubenheimer, F, Gébara, C & Béraud, I, 'Circulation des amphores et vide sanitaire, 1'exemple de Fréjus', 119-122. A brief summary of entry no. 1220.
   Brun, J-P, Lecacheur, P &: pasqualini, M, 'Les amphores du port antique de Toulon (Telo Martius)', 123-131. With an appendix on the stamps found on Gaulish amphorae and lids at Toulon.
   Laubenheimer, F, Schwaller, M & Vidal, L, 'Nîmes, les amphores de la rue de Condé', 133-150. With an appendix on the stamps from the rue de Condé, and an appendix by F Formenti, 'Analyse de 1'enduit interne d'une amphore Richborough 527'. Includes a number of tables, pie-charts and histograms showing the percentages of different types found. Wine predominates.
   Desbat, A & Dangréaux, B, 'La distribution des amphores dans la région lyonnaise. Etude de deux sites de consommation', 151-6. Includes several histograms and graphs showing the percentages of different types found. As at Nîmes, wine predominates.
   Martin-Kilcher, S, 'Les amphores de Gaule romaine: leur présence à Augusta Rauricorum', 157-161. A brief summary of the types, their origins and contents. Baudoux, J, 'La circulation des amphores dans le Nord-Est de la France', 163-9. More quantitative comparison. Brulet, R, Laubenheimer, F & Vilvorder, F, 'Les amphores de Braives, un vicus de Gaule Belgique', 171-7. This is a similar quantitative summary, but it includes some unusual imports, possibly from Spain and/or Italy, and a Cretan Dr 43.
   Fitzpatrick, A P, 'La place des amphores dans 1'approvisionnement militaire de 1'Ecosse romaine', 179-183. See also entry no. 1223.
  : panella, C, 'Mercato di Roma e anfore galliche nella prima età imperiale', 185-206. More tables, histograms and pie-charts showing the types found in Rome.
Cipriano, M T, 'Un sistema informativo delle iscrizioni sulla ceramica romana', 221-4. A system used at Rome for computerizing amphora inscriptions.
