This is a study of fine dark colour-coated pottery from Roman Gaul and Germany. The products are chiefly beakers and cups; they were made in Central and East Gaul between the early second and the mid third century at centres that were also manufacturing samian pottery. This volume aims to establish a typology for the vessel types produced at the different centres, to assess the evolution and dating of the tradition and particularly its origin and demise, and to examine its close relationship with the samian factories and traditions. An appendix lists motto beakers with their inscriptions. Extensive catalogue of 897 pots illustrated in the drawings. Based on the author's doctoral thesis.
