The standardisation of shape within samian plain-forms is obvious enough. This paper asks the question 'how was this standardisation achieved'?'. Diagrams show how the forms could have been achieved using simple tools.

The first of eight papers that continue her 1985 volume, Katalog der Romischen Lumpen des Rheinischen Landesmuseums Trier, Bildlampen und Sonderformen, Trierer Grabungen und Forschungen 15 (which covered volute lamps, Löschke I, IV and circular-bodied ones, Löschke VIII: I have not seen this). In this particular paper, there are chiefly more volute-lamps and figure-lamps.

So-called 'tallow lamps': Bailey (above, entry no 1377) notes uncertainty as to their actual use, and omits them from his catalogue.

Plastic lamps, including deities, faces, feet, animals, gladiator's helmets and statuettes. The last three papers in this series, not listed here, cover distinctive forms not found widely elsewhere (Trierer Z 54, 1991, 217-32) and late Roman lamps, including local products (Trierer Z 55, 1992, 245-98; 56, 1993, 135-248).

The volume represents the continuation of the author's analysis of Trier samian (see Trierer ReliefsigillataWerkstatt I, Bonn 1972) and deals with a group of anonymous potters apparently working c AD 140-165. The core of the book is a catalogue of figure types and decorative details (drawn at 1:1) accompanied by 660 decorative schemes (at 1:2) divided into 6 sub-groups. There is also discussion of foot-ring types (all on form 37) and photographs of both moulds and bowls. Throughout the book the production quality is of the highest. It may be noted that, alongside the mid-2nd century production by this workshop, the later reuse of moulds ('spätausformungen') is proposed (apparently in the first half of the third century).

The study of Rheinzabern samian has acquired a dependency upon two hypotheses. The first is a sequence of relative dating for potters first advanced by Ricken and Ludowici in the layout of their 1942 volume (Die Bilderschusseln der romischen Topfer von Rheinzabern Tafeln Speyer 1942) and supported by the statistical analysis of Bittner (entry 1406, above). The second is the suggested later reuse of moulds ('Spataus-formungen').
  : In this article, Mees questions both hypotheses. His main argument is statistical - that the Bittner analysis should have used the Jaccard coefficient not that of Yule and this is backed by a re-working of the analysis using Jaccard, although no chronological significance is claimed for the resultant dendrogram. He further points out that a difference in names found in the mould and on the vessel need not be evidence for later reuse. Both this and differing base forms on vessels from closely similar moulds may presumably be the result of a trade in moulds similar to that known from other areas.
