Print description

The terra sigillata vessel in the form of a bowl on a foot comes from the cremation tomb accidentally discovered in Lisów (Opatów district). The vessel was imported from a province of the Roman Empire. The form of the vessel is typical of the pottery workshop in Rheinzabern (south-western Germany), the largest centre producing vessels of this type in the northern provinces of the Roman Empire (Germania Superior), operating in 190–220. The vessel was made of clay, sealed in the matrix with a negative decoration, and subsequently baked in a furnace in the pottery workshop of Primitivus I.

The terra sigillata vessel in the form of a bowl on a foot comes from the cremation tomb accidentally discovered in Lisów (Opatów district). The vessel was imported from a province of the Roman Empire. The form of the vessel is typical of the pottery workshop in Rheinzabern (south-western Germany), the largest centre producing vessels of this type in the northern provinces of the Roman Empire (Germania Superior), operating in 190–220. The vessel was made of clay, sealed in the matrix with a negative decoration, and subsequently baked in a furnace in the pottery workshop of Primitivus I. The walls of the vessel are covered with a characteristic red engobe. It is decorated with a geometric and animal ornament in the metope and medallion style, consisting of four medallions (with a figure of a bird in flight) arranged alternately with four metope figures of an eagle, a dog, a hare, and a crane sealed inside them. The figures are separated with vertical strings. In the decorative strap is the seal of the name of the pottery workshop — of the decorator Primitivus I — placed vertically. The decorative strap is encircled with an ovolo running above it.
