The publication of a series of 'bag-shaped' beakers made at Nida- Heddernheim, near Frankfurt. Nearly all of the beakers have cornice rims, roughly half of the 25 illustrated examples are roughcast, and two are folded. This production is obviously very similar to that of the Argonne, of Colchester and possibly of Sinzig (see Symonds, R P, 'The problem of roughcast beakers, and related forms', elsewhere in this JRPS volume).

A detailed paper on products of the Saturninus-Satto group of porters found in Britain. A total of 35 examples are discussed, although the illustrations are limited to a presentation of the typical poinçons used by these porters. The important objective of the discussion is to point out that Saturninus and Satto were not simultaneously running a series of workshops in the region of Lorraine and nearby Rheinland-Pfalz, they were separate potters whose floruits and whose decorative styles were not entirely overlapping. Although some sherds/vessels may only be attributable to 'the Saturninus-Satto group', which may include other imitators as well, a considerable majority of pieces (32 out of 35, in this case) may be clearly attributed to either Saturninus or Satto in particular.

An exploration of the relations, first suggested by Knorr in 1927, between the potter Austrus of Lezoux and a potter who did not stamp his vessels but who used a very similar range of figure-types at Blickweiler. The possibility of these being one and the same potter has also been reiterated by Oswald and by Stanfield & Simpson. The evidence is presented in the form of comparisons of the figure-types, and tables showing where else these were also used. The final conclusion is that the vessels represent the work of more than one potter, although the Blickweiler potter is very likely to have been a student of Austrus of Lezoux.

An abridged version (in French) of the paper which appeared in JRPS Volume 2, Storey, et a!, 'A chemical investigation of "Colchester" samian by means of inductively-coupled plasma emission spectrometry'. The main finding is that some sherds previously identified as Coichester samian are found to have probably been made at Sinzig, on the Rhine, including all analysed sherds attributed to Hull's Potter C.

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.

It seems that a version of early samian ware was produced at Haltern during the period of military pacification of the Rhineland. Its products, which Drag form 17 and Ritterling form 5 seem to include only one (circular) stamp, P. Flos, but examples have been found at Neuss, Cologne, Andernach, Mainz and Weisbaden. Chemical analysis is also used to show that this was indeed a local production, not merely a variant of Italian type
