A short paper publishing pottery and glass from a 19th century collection, with the aim of putting the material into a modern perspective on Roman pottery found in Lower Normandy. It is not a large amount of material, however, and it will probably be more important for its coarse wares than for the imports: had it been written only a year or so later, its writers would have been unlikely to have attributed the roughcast, cornice-rimmed beakers to Compiègne, as their own more recent research has shown evidence both of local production and of importation otherwise almost exclusively from the Argonne.

exc,col,syn/trd/mid 1st-end of 2nd/typ 
A useful summary of the types of colour-coated beakers found in Normandy dating from the latter half of the 1st century to the end of the 2nd (or perhaps somewhat later, to judge by the inclusion of Trier-type 'Moselkeramik'). Chemical analyses by the authors and others (see also entry no. 670) have demonstrated that the colour-coated wares made at centres such as Lezoux, the Argonne, Jaulges/Villiers-Vineux and Trier are clealy chemically distinguishable. Examples of vessels from all of these sources have been identified in Normandy, as well as vessels probably from a local source. These latter are roughcast, cornice-rimmed beakers with a greyish fabric; all such vessels with a reddish fabric are (chemically) identified as from the Argonne.

"soapy" ware
This first volume on Liberchies is intended to be the first of a series mirroring that on Braives. Published in the same style, by the same team, the pottery is very similar, although the main difference is that both of the two areas published in this volume, a building 
    peripheral to the main settlement and an area known as the 'Fontaine des Turcs', were abandoned before the fourth century, the latter probably by the beginning of the third. As there were in fact few finds from the former area, this means that the pottery is almost entirely 1st and 2nd century. There is nevertheless much of interest in it, in particular the groups of 2nd century Argonne samian, the face pots, the mica-gilt ware, and the dolia. See also entry no. 652.

An earlier, shorter version (in French) of a paper which appears elsewhere in this JRPS volume, 'The problem of roughcast beakers, and related colour-coated wares'. The analyses of 'bag- shaped' roughcast beakers found at Colchester have shown that a small, typologically indistinguishable proportion of these were probably not made at Colchester, and their association with analyses of various samian wares suggests that these may have been made at Sinzig, on the Rhine. A further group of equally typologically indistinguishable vessels from kiln-sites in the 67 Argonne is also illustrated.

ats/stv (roller-stamped)
A substantial paper on the distribution of roller-stamped Argonne samian in north-western Gaul, particularly Brittany, Normandie and Picardie, but Britain is also included in two general distribution maps. There is a set of eight maps of north-western Gaul showing the comparative proportions of each of the eight roller-stamp types defined by Hiibener (Banner Jahrbucher, 168, 1968, 241-298: Illustrations of the eight group types, with their respective proposed dating, appear earlier in the same SFECAG volume, in entry no. 1203, 163). There is also a set of seven maps showing the distributions respectively of the seven most important Argonne workshops, viz, Lavoye, Châtel-Chéhery, les Allieux, Vauquois, Pont-des-Quatre-Enfants, Avocourt and Aubréville. A total of 120 roller-stamped sherds or stamps on their own are illustrated from sites in Normandie, and there are several tables showing the numbers of examples recorded at a wide range of sites.
The authors point out that particularly after the late 4th century roller-stamped Argonne ware is virtually the only good dating evidence for many sites, since dateable coins are thereafter very rare. This means that the thirty-year periods established by Hubener for his successive types can only be a rough guide, and while there have been some criticisms of the Hubener system, it remains all there is. This paper is a considerable contribution to the subject.
