Bordelais continued:
   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.
   Carre, M-B, 'La banque de données "timbres sur amphores romaines" du Centre Camille Jullian', 225-230. A similar system being developed at the University of Provence. Picon, M, 'L'étude en laboratoire des amphores. Problèmes spécifiques', 231-6. Problems involved in elemental analyses of amphorae.
   Virtually all of these papers are relatively brief resumes of material which either has been or will be published in more detail elsewhere. Nevertheless, given that the specific and general discussions include comments by most of the best-known amphora researchers in Europe, the volume as a whole is a remarkably comprehensive summary of the general state of amphora studies as they stood in 1990.

1236  Santrot, M-H & J, 'Soubran et Petit-Niort (Charente-Maritime), concurrence "organisée" entre potiers d'ateliers ruraux spécialisés', SFECAG, Actes du Congrés de Cognac, 1991, 83-98.
Soubran and Petit-Niort are twin villages which lie almost exactly halfway between Bordeaux and Saintes. This is a study of two recently identified pottery production centres at a distance of some four kilometres apart, which appear to have produced similar series of coarse tablewares, but which seem to have co-operated in the marketing of their products. The two illustrated ranges of wares are not identical, but at both sites one of the most important products was a large pinched-mouthed flagon, and both series also include cornice-rimmed, bag-shaped beakers. A section on chemical analyses of the fabrics shows that they are chemically separable, although visually this is often not the case. It was the results of the analyses which led, therefore, to the realisation that the marketing of the respective series was not competitive, since Petit-Niort products are found at Saintes and elsewhere in Saintonge, while Soubran products are found mainly at Bordeaux and elsewhere to the south.
