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.

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.

This paper follows on from Mme Simon-Hiernard's book on pottery
in the Musée de Poitiers (JRPS 4, entry no. 1005) by
re-examining and taking a broader view of the most significant
pottery type highlighted in that work, marbled wares from
western France. While retaining (and re-printing) the typology
established by Raimbault (Gallia 31, 1973, 185-206), this
study looks in detail at the distribution of Aquitanian marbled
wares, showing that they are found in highest concentration in
Charente-Maritime, to the west and north of Poitiers. Although
one outlier is noted from Switzerland, the bulk of the wares are
found to the west of Paris, from the valley of the Gironde to
the south to the Severn Valley in Britain, to the north. Simon-Hiernard's
map indicates almost as many findspots in Britain as in Normandy
and Brittany, and a remarkably high proportion of the findspots,
even those in Charente-Maritime, are either on the coast or on
rivers. One cannot usually say that an individual vessel must
have travelled by water or by land to reach its destination, and
of course most major settlements are linked to the rest of the
world by both waterways and roads, but this map does certainly
suggest a predominance of water transport for marbled wares.
There is not much doubt about the finds from Britain and the
