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.

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.

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

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.

A brief iconographic study of vessels by the Satvrninvs-Satto
potters from Eincheville-le-Tenig, Bonn and Zarbeling, (Moselle,
arr. de Forbach). This work was complemented by the chemical
analyses of the same vessels presented in entry no. 1218. The
vessels in question are lagenae and a gourd, both unusual forms
in East Gaulish samian.

lox (snake pots)
A study of Roman period snake vases found at the Isthmian
Sanctuary of Poseidon at Corinth. Two are illustrated; fragments
of a third were also found. Both of the illustrated vessels
strongly resemble Romano-British face pots - Cam form
288, for example - with frilled rims, a short neck and two
handles, but with a snake entwined around the body rather than a
face on one side. The applied notched snake decoration also has
much in common with other oxidised vessels with
"plastic" decoration from Colchester and Verulamium. A
brief survey reveals snake-decorated vessels have been found at
London, Richborough, reeded-rimmed and biconical bowls, handled
jars, flagons with one and two handles (the latter described as
amphorae) and lids. Two substantial kilns are also illustrated,
one rectangular and the other round.
