When archaeologists understood the importance of the historical data. the use of written material – even extremely important sources. 8: «In questo quadro storiografico il potenziamento del dialogo con i colleghi archeologi può rendere la Sicilia ancora territorio di molte domande che devono ricevere risposte dalla sistemazione organica dei risultati degli scavi e in una visione di sintesi sui contesti che concorrerebbe a superare i limiti della sclerotizzazione testuale». such as textile. p. concerning.

On that occasion. for the Italian stamped terra sigillata. see Malfitana 2004 b. the available epigraphic documentation can not give us information about other economic sectors. relationship between rural settlements and cities. 2 Marino 2006. the reconstruction of the ancient picture is somewhat easier. . and. such as economy. the complex road infrastructure network3 – on an island where portoria4 and markets were surely vital –. 5 Nowadays. handcrafts. during the workshop at the Danish Institute at Athens. based on a preliminary analysis of the available archaeological and historical data.

3 Concerning the Late Roman. methods and investigation approaches». its significance and its application. these areas of research in Sicily are becoming better understood.3 The main research aim is to collect all the available published material4 concerning table wares and commercial amphorae. The first and main difficulty is to systematise the information available. not only specifically related to the material analysed. Malfitana . The chronological period we analysed covered the period from the creation of the province to the beginning of the late Antiquity (i. 2008-2009. for istance thanks to the publications of Alcamo Marina.g.

The unpublished data obtained by the Sicily Archaeological Superintendence or universities and research institutes studying archaeology on the island are for the moment omitted. we will finally have important means by which to reconstruct more precisely the political and economic history (by putting together for the first time all the available data as an organic whole). but also to discover contact areas. or the important case of Santa Venera al Pozzo1 in the hinterland of Catina. classica ed orientale.

The project is based first on the observation of the areas (i. evaluating and interpreting the data. drawn by other documented areas. Here we also decided to present one particular case study of . and in particular of kilns. 174-180) that redefines the main classifications of amphora types according to the most updated typologies. which are extremely important for reconstructing economic and production patterns. due to differential rates of publication of the results or. we must use great caution. Nevertheless. even more often. These questions are: how many pottery classes are there on the island? Which are currently identifiable imports? Which are the most important stratigraphic contexts? Which pottery comes from the East. yet relevant. and why are they called «local»? What is the ratio between local and imported products? Which are the most strategically important towns in the Sicily province? Where are the production centres on the island? Which kind of archaeometric information about Sicily can provide clear guidelines to recognize local products and imitations? How was the data collected? Does it come from excavations or from surveys? What are the patterns of consumption (civil. some recurrent questions were posed to me. the production areas on the island) and second on the known ceramic typologies. Here we present the first table (Table 1: pp. while considering presences and absences within the more general and homogeneous context of the Mediterranean basin. which are difficult to answer definitively.

Here we chose to introduce the first general observations collected and to postpone the detailed publication (currently in progress) of the existing testimonies and of the quantities found. It is not possible to postpone the collection of information about the existence of production complexes.132 daniele malfitana et alii whole scientific community and that also reflects the latest developments in the field. and which comes from the West? Which are the local products. Regardless. For these reasons we will obtain a heterogeneous ‘commercial’ overview that will still be beneficial to our project. if known. religious and military) that can be reconstructed? In which contexts were amphorae and table wares used? This is an admittedly long list of questions. then the different weight of every ceramic type and consequently the weight of the production regions outside Sicily. By reading. we want to first underline the micro and macro levels of commercialization. due to the current lack of tools and means. and only by answering them can we have a first largescale view that is perhaps still vague. but at least utilizes some complex. Questions and research aims During the various meetings I have taken part in the past few years (where we also discussed this project in advance or some specific topics). which are often coined during excavations and then maintained and which create additional confusion. In other words.

Distribution maps of chronological phases. In this paper. Map i (made by Giovanni Fragalà) and . integrating the data already known. .Distribution maps of some amphora and table ware types for identification of privilege diffusion areas. which used to also connect very distant cities through an exchange system that was based on a common Roman hegemonic policy. which is very important for the study of Roman Sicily production. the absence of an amphora type at a site has the same importance as its presence. In fact. . The tools used to observe the data will be: .roman sicily project: ceramics and trade 133 interest – that of the amphora type Dressel 21-22 of the Alcamo Marina complex. The presence or absence of a particular amphora type in an area makes it possible to discover two important features of the general Roman economy: 1) Productive specialisation: some sites based their economy on the production and exportation of one or two types of goods. it is necessary to treat information objectively from the beginning. For this purpose some distribution maps will be created using both temporal and typological perspectives. for comparison of the presence and the types of material in an area over different periods. .Presence of a specific pottery type at a site (discovered thanks to the data concerning the relationship between two sites) as the basis for understanding the commercial interests of the site. negative data is a key element.Types of goods and products exchanged in order to eventually find constant and planned exchange of raw material. which will form the basis of a precise and objective analysis of the different contexts we were interested in. 2) Merchants used to prefer some commercial networks and routes. According to this view. and they were part of a big chain. it will be useful to analyse the finds diachronically and synchronically. we decide to present a preliminary distribution map of Sicily that shows all sites at which amphorae were founded. whereby.Distribution in larger and smaller geographic areas (starting with an observation of distribution patterns in Sicily and then the observation of patterns throughout the Mediterranean basin). thereby leaving the previous historical and archaeological information aside. Daniele Malfitana The data collection In order to collect useful data for a historical-commercial reconstruction. Only after this data observation – without preconceptions and with a readiness to accept all the information that the finds might give us – will it be possible to get specific understanding about the area. which underlies the observation and collection method. For the investigative approach adopted. With these maps we can immediately make a comparison among the data we have. . it is imperative that the temporal area of interest be analysed.Diachronic gis-based maps about the finds according to a chronological distinction of the material found.

Among the Eastern amphorae there are fragments of lra1 produced in Cilicia and Cyprus, lra2 fragments produced in Greece – more precisely in Boeotia,5 and, which single fragment of lra3 seems to be produced in Ephesus, because of the macroscopic character of its fabric. In the area of Agrigentum, the settlement in the town of Montallegro (Map i, C4) – near the quarter of Campanaio6 – deserves mention. It is not only a small rural site, but a large farm specialized in a wide range of activities related to agriculture. In this settlement there were both residential buildings and places to work agricultural products, such as a tank for oil. The area controlled by the centre used to produce a surplus that apparently could also enable the export of oil – although on a small scale. According to the excavator, the oil was stored in either locally produced amphorae7 or amphorae coming from different parts of the Mediterranean sea. This seems to be

Franco, in Caminneci - Franco - Galioto (in press). 2 Some samples produced in Byzacena (atelier of Sullechtum), in the Sahel region, in the ateliers of Zeugitana (atelier of Neapolis, atelier of Sidi-Zahruni) and in atelier of Leptis Magna in Tripolitania were found. 3 This fragment seems to have Brutian origin – on the basis of the characteristics of the fabric – is morphologically connected to some specimens found in the strata of abandonment of the Basilica Hilariana, dated back to the vi th century, Pacetti 1998, p. 200, fig. 9, no. 2. 4 For the attestation of the Keay lii type in Eastern Sicily, see Palazzo, supra, pp. 134-145. 5 Production in Tanagra or Thebes. 6 Wilson 1982; Wilson 1990, Wilson 1996, Wilson 2000. 7 «Market centre for the sale of oil of different provenience and qualities», Wilson 1996, p. 30.

The majority of them were produced in Africa, but there is also a lra1 and an amphora which is interpreted as a Sicilian imitation of an Eastern type (Fig. 20). The most important case of amphorae finds coming from urban contexts is presented at the city of Agrigentum (Map i, C4). Almost all the published data concern a catacomb complex, composed of the Giambertoni necropolis, the cave of Fragapane and the sub divo necropolis, all set behind the Hill of Temples.1 In strata of the iiird-v th century ad some Italic,2 Iberian,3 North African4 and Eastern5 amphorae were discovered, but the majorFig. 20. lra 1 from Montallegro (Campanaio), ity were produced in Tunisia. Sicilian imitation (after Wilson 1996, fig. 5.12). In the area of the Sanctuary of Asclepius – where archaeological investigations were carried out between 1982 and 1989 and completed in 20006 – there are few amphora fragments from the Late Republican and Late Roman periods. The African amphorae (African ii and Keay xxv)7 were found in a rectangular cistern, north of the temple of Asclepius. Moving to South-Central Sicily, the region presents different geological characteristics – there are fertile plains with rivers, such as the Gela, the Maroglio and the Salso, and high and moderate hills. These favourable conditions have always encouraged the long-term presence of urban and rural agglomerates. From the Roman Age onwards they were located in particular along the ways pointed out by the Itinerarium Antonini and by the Tabula Peutingeriana.8 Throughout the Roman period, rural settlements were prevalent: latifundia were typically composed of the villa (pars dominica), a large or moderate number of praedia and a vast quantity of farms controlled by the villa and run by conductores, as corroborated by the stamp impressions put on bricks.9

roman sicily project: ceramics and trade 157 The number, the topographical distribution and the evolution of the majority of the villages are still uncertain, but some recent investigations made by the Superintendence of Caltanissetta1 on some of these villages – almost totally unpublished – have provided important information about their history and their relationships with the surrounding area. The investigation in the site of Sophiana2 (Map i, E4), started during the 1960s, attempted to clarify the relationship between the spaces of the settlement and its surrounding area.3 The ancient centre – used since the beginning of the Imperial period untill the vii th century – had thermae, Christian places of worship, and an extensive necropolis. It appears to correspond to the statio Philosophiana on the road from Catina to Agrigentum.4 The excavation campaigns carried out in 1988 and 1990 have made it possible to appreciate the importance of the village during the first Imperial period. Since its earliest occupation, some table wares produced in Africa and amphorae (in particular, Dressel 2-4) were imported. They attest to the existence of important commercial flows in the Mediterranean basin.5 During the late iiird century ad the village was downgraded to the status of subsidiary village (emporium), connected to the villa of Piazza Armerina (Map i, E4). It is likely that Philosophiana was the exit route for the latifundium surrounding the villa, and also the place in which the agricultural labourers lived. One Keay lxii variant A amphora,6 a spatheion,7 an amphora with a decoration “a pettine” on the shoulder8 and two amphorae – still partially unpublished – were uncovered in the Byzantine strata.9 During the Late Roman period, the role of this village was surely connected to the needs of the surrounding area. The village was one of the centres of the urban life in this part of Sicily, where the main economic activity was the cultivation of cereals. Not far from Sophiana, in the modern town of Mazzarino (in the province of Caltanissetta) there is a site in the quarter of Minnelli (Map i, E4). At this location, some traces of a rural settlement were recently found, and the ceramics unearthed reveal that it was populated from the iind to the v th centuries.10 Thanks to the pottery found, excavators also dated a small artisan workshop to the vi-vii th centuries ad. These finds include fragments of African red slip wares (Hayes 94, 104, 105)11 and «anfore con anse a profilo ad orecchia» attributed to a local production. These fragments were compared with the globular amphora having an umbo-shaped bottom and a decoration «a pettine» on the shoulder, found in the public bath of Sophiana.12 Archaeologists

As regards the Aegadian islands. there is a complete lack of historic and archaeological documentation: the information about Roman and Byzantine complexes comes primarily from surveys and wrecks. any conclusion about them is tentative – even reckless.

But the typological-quantitative approach is not enough to define the complicated economic and production phenomena. there are no late antique amphorae coming from North Africa. Obviously. and therefore to analyse microregions. new research and analyses of the published data can clarify whether the differences found are real or caused by different field methods and a different depth of the investigation. Typological and quantitative information about amphorae is almost absent. the great majority also here were produced in North Africa. a historic-economic approach should be ap- 1 The piece of evidence appears even more strange when compared with the Island of Pantelleria.2 The publication of these data enriched our knowledge about the production/exportation/importation of ceramic artefacts. yet this seems to be connected to the lack of published data rather than an actual archaeological absence. which one would expect to be the types most commonly imported. investigations based on modern scientific-archaeological criterion have shown the absolute preponderance of the North African amphorae (see infra). The high frequency of finds is additional evidence of the fundamental role of Pantelleria. systematic excavation campaigns and precise publications and catalogues about the material are needed. There. studies have shown a long-range commercial exchange network. which was an intermediate storage port set on trans-mediterranean routes.

Pantelleria is an extremely important source of information about the history of Mediterranean commerce during Antiquity. and these data would indicate the beginning of a commercial relationship with the Aegean area. The investigation is the result of a collaboration between the University of Bologna and the Superintendence of Trapani.3 and drew a picture of the commercial relationships of the island within the commercial system of the Mediterranean basin.Tosi 1997. .

Our initial research confirms an image of Sicily as an active and major island receiving significant amounts of goods from all over the Mediterranean basin. as well as some specific gis maps. 27. This work is currently being undertaken by our team of researchers and its results will provide us with a better understanding of the social and economic dynamics of Sicily during the Roman period. it will make the computerized database available to the entire scientific community. in western Sicily.

the inland sites appear to be again active. In fact. early Imperial: 30-100 ad. the presence of amphorae is quite widespread. It is also important to note that the rate of publication of excavation material is critical to the expansion of this project. their role as gathering places that makes these sites a necessary focal point for commercial distribution. but also in the exchange of people. but little studied. All this shows that the inland sites and their resources participated more actively in wide-ranging commerce. they were directly interested not only in the production. Instead. Starting from the iv th century onwards. In analysing all of Sicily. even before a specific thematic map has been defined. which seems to cover more sites. we can see that in eastern regions there were fewer small settlements the economies of which revolved around the important centres. late Imperial: 300450-475 ad. consequently. I think that in the future it will be useful to carry out study of the production sites currently known in Sicily. Sophiana and Piazza Armerina.roman sicily project: ceramics and trade 171 200-30 bc. It is their importance as ports and. In western Sicily this concentration is not present. During the Middle Imperial period there was a slight expansion towards the northern coast. In western Sicily. In the Late Roman period everything seems to be more complex: particularly in the area between Ragusa and Gela. the concentration around the most important towns seems to have been abandoned in favour of a more capillary occupation of the area. early Byzantine: 450/475-640-650 ad). the sites where amphorae were found are in much higher frequency. of course. and the direct relationship with Africa seems to have played a decisive role. During the late Roman period there was a big decrease in the distribution of amphorae with a limited presence at mainly coastal sites. such as Messana. as these sites are part of the route from central Sicily to the harbour area of Catina. This tendency is also reflected in the distribution of amphorae. amphorae are spread throughout this region suggesting a fragmentation of settlements and their more elaborate commercial dynamics. The beginning of a vast process of archaeo- . goods and. In addition. ideas. the western Sicilian villages do not seem to revolve around bigger and more important centres. This phenomenon has to be considered carefully. This is especially the case in the area between Gela. but the situation on the southeastern coast seems to have remained the same. and important new sites. In contrast to what seems to be happening in eastern Sicily. at least until the iv th century ad. it is important to pursue the study of the onomastics and toponymy of sites and the distribution areas in relation to Roman ceramic studies. in other words.

Tutte queste osservazioni verranno poi collocate in un più ampio contesto geopolitico e sociale costruito su una infinità di dati che verranno presto inseriti all’interno del sito web del progetto (www. Cominciano così a delinearsi primi modelli di economia regionale che contraddistingue la realtà isolana.org. .romansicilyproject. Esso ha l’obiettivo di indagare gli aspetti economici ed il fenomeno di produzione e importazione di anfore da trasporto ritrovate nella Sicilia romana. A questo obiettivo generale si affianca poi una prima serie di riflessioni sul fenomeno del commercio a lunga distanza che univa la Sicilia ad altre realtà del Mediterraneo.) attualmente in via di costruzione.
