Names on Terra Sigillata, the product of 40 years of study, records over 5, names and some , stamps and signatures on Terra Sigillata samian ware manufactured in the 1st to the 3rd centuries AD in Gaul, the German provinces and Britain. The importance of samian as a tool for dating archaeological contexts and the vast increase in samian finds since then has prompted the authors to record the work of the potters in greater detail, illustrating, whenever possible, each individual stamp or signature which the potter used, and enumerating examples of each vessel type on which it appears, together with details of find-spots, repositories and museum accession numbers or excavators’ site codes. Dating of the potters’ activity is supported, as far as possible, by a discussion of the evidence. This is based on the occurrence of material in historically-dated contexts or on its association with other stamps or signatures dated by this method. The bulk of the material was examined personally by the authors, from kiln sites and occupation sites in France, the Netherlands, Germany, and Britain, but the catalogue also includes published records which they were able to verify, both from those areas and from other parts of the Roman Empire.

In the 19th and first part of the 20th century a large part of the terps along the North Seacoast have been quarried as fertilizer for sandy and peaty soils. During this process a lot of well-preserved objects were found and collected. Among these were several thousand imported objects of Roman provenance, mostly fragments of terra sigillata T. More than fragments were collected from over 90 different terps but with remarkable differences in frequency.
Twelve terps contained more than 50 fragments of which five had more than T. Till now only a very small part of the material is published. It will be followed by the research of the T. S from the province Groningen. Described were fragments: sherd from by mould decorated vessels and from plain T.

In: Anatolia Antiqua , Tome 20, Anatolia Antiqua XX , p. In the Roman and Byzantine periods Paphlagonia was an area on the north-central Black Sea coast of Asia Minor, situated between Bithynia and Pontus, and bordered by Galatia by the eastern prolongation of the Bithynian Olympus. Culturally, it was a contact zone between Greeks in the Black Sea area and the indigenous population of the Central Anatolian plateau.
The region is the least well-known area with the regard to Hellenistic and Roman ceramics in comparison with other countries that are located on the Black Sea coasts, namely Bulgaria, Romania, Moldovia, Ukraine, Russia and Georgia. The few number of Roman pottery studies that have been conducted in the region are not sufficient to draw an accurate picture of the ceramicological heritage there1. Some recent field work has provided results about the Hellenistic and Roman ceramic traditions in the region, such as studies at Sinope2, Tieion and Pompeiopolis3.
By the researches elsewhere in the Black Sea we know that the southern Pontic. Paphlagonia and its eastern neighbour Pontus was the major production centre for Pontic sigillata in the Roman times

A second handle may have been present opposite the one shown. Measurements of the complete vessels are unknown. Note the complex incised decoration and the molded human face. Discoveries from the original settlement include parts of the waterfront, a stone warehouse with attached privy, the forge, a cobblestone street, and parts of the defensive works.
Many of the fragments bear fine incised curvilinear geometric decorations formed by pairs of incised lines and picked out with a white slip. At least four types of vessel forms can now be recognized. The fabric of all of the examples is fine and apparently untempered. The vessels are burnished on the exterior surfaces, and fired to a uniform bright orange color. No traces of color variation caused by the kiln environment are on any of the sherds.
The most complete example fig. Vertical handles extend from just below the rim to somewhat below the vessel midpoint.

The best-known is the plain and relief-decorated pottery of 1st-3rd century AD from southern, central, and eastern Gaul called Samian ware and also in Italy and Germany. Generically related or derivative of terra sigillata are the late Roman Argonne or Marne ware, and North African African Red Slip and eastern red wares.
The term means literally ware made of clay impressed with designs. The ware was produced to be traded, especially throughout the Roman Empire. It is clearly based on metal prototypes and the body of the ware was generally cast in a mold. Relief designs were also cast in molds which had been impressed with stamps in the desired patterns and then applied to the vessels. The quality of the pottery was high, considering its mass production. However, there was a gradual roughness to the forms and decoration over the four centuries of production.
After the decline of Arretium production, terra sigillata was made in Gaul from the 1st century AD at La Graufesenque now Millau and later at other centers in Gaul.
