The project is focused on the analysis of fine pottery from the Roman period in an areal of north-eastern Sicily and on the reconstruction of production, trade, circulation and use, starting from the case study of the Colonia Augusta Tyndaritanorum. The identification of the production areas of the imported artefacts will be followed by analysis of regional and local ones: it will be possible to assess the local production capacity in relation to the demands of the domestic market; the imports will constitute an indicator for assessing the wealth and economic vitality achieved in Roman times by Sicily’s centres. The expected result is the preparation of one or more contributions for a publication currently being planned by Rosina Leone and Daniela Gandolfi, in which the analysis of fine pottery of Roman period, starting with Tindaritan production, will form part of a more general study of the production and circulation of some classes of artefacts in Greek and Roman Sicily.
