Rheinzabemer Releftopfer', Bayerische Vorgeschichtsblatter 51, 1986. 233-259 & Tabellen 7-12.
A very detailed paper on the dating of potters' stamps and the corresponding figure-types and ovolos (where relevant) from Rheinzabern. There are no illustrations of sherds or vessels, but there are numerous tables and lists, which show the dating evidence for each known potter, and make statistical comparisons between the potters' decorative techniques. Much new evidence from recent excavations, both at Rheinzabem itself (see also entry no. 385) and elsewhere is included.

379 Huld-Zetsche, I, Der römische Fasanenkrug aus Mainz, Archdologische Berichte aus Rheinhessen und dem Kreis Bad Kreuznach, Band 2, Mainz, 1984.
A pamphlet on 'A Roman pheasant-flagon from Mainz', the vessel itself being illustrated in full colour on the front cover, as well as in two further plates. The vessel is a globular, very narrow-necked flagon in a relatively coarse red colour-coated fabric, with two broad bands of cream slip separated by a floral pattern, with red painted decoration, including three pheasants. There is also interesting discussion, lavishly illustrated, of other similarly decorated pottery vessels and wall- plaster. Available from the Museum für Vor-und Fruhgeschichte, Holzhausenschlosschen, Frankfurt-am-Main.

This publication of recent excavations at Rheinzabem is particularly important for the overall view it gives of numerous substantial kilns of both round and square shapes all found in a relatively confined area. Along with plans and sections, there is a list of potters' stamps from these excavations (see also entry no. 375), and discussion of other activities at the site, such as tile manufacture (including stamped tiles).

This follows the tradition of useful late Roman and Merovingian cemetery publications from the Lower Rhineland, best exemplified by the series of volumes on the cemeteries at Krefeld-Gellep by Dr Renate Pining. The report on the excavations of the southwest Roman cemetery at Tongres is divided into two volumes. The first contains descriptions of the 289 graves and their contents, and a general study of the grave contents -  : principally later Roman pottery and glass - and the second volume is devoted to plans of selected graves showing the locations of the finds, and
    illustrations  of the finds, grave by grave. The pottery contains an interesting range of fine and coarse wares, including late samian (Argonne-type), late Trier fine wares and Eifelkeramik. Available through Oxbow Books.

A group of eleven poinçons found in a collection at the Musée Granet, Aix-en-Provence, had previously been thought to have been first discovered in Bordeaux. But further study of the figures involved, and analyses by thermoluminesce (JG) have confirmed the author's (CB) view that these were figures used at Blickweiler and Rheinzabem. Four sherds and a potter's signature (Floridi) are illustrated.

This is the first of a planned series of studies on 1st century pottery from Amiens (studies on 3rd and 4th century material are planned by D Bayard, and pottery clearly to the 2nd century seems to be almost non-existent from Amiens). Basically it is a type series of terra nigra, terra rubra and  related wares, such as butt beakers and narrow-necked jars (Cam form 231/232). Well presented, with many parallels quoted and much detailed discussion of the derivation and dating of individual types. It is worthwhile comparing this material with what is presented in entry no. 628, early wares found at Trier. See also entry no. 593.

596 Bird, I, 'Two Groups of Late Samian from London', Rei Cretariae Romanae Fautores, Acta XXV/XXVI, 1987, 325-330.
A brief discussion of two unusual groups of late samian from London, one from New Fresh Wharf and the other from Shadwell, in the area of the London Docks. Both contain substantial numbers of vessels from Rheinzabem and Trier, dating to the mid-3rd century: comparable assemblages are unknown elsewhere in Britain. Full reports on both groups have by now been published, but this paper provides a useful introduction to them, and discussion of their combined significance.
