    DescriptionThis handbook is an introduction to the pottery most commonly made and used in the Roman Mediterranean region from the first century BC to the sixth century AD. John W. Hayes, the acknowledged authority in this field, explains the particular features that mark Roman-period wares, concisely describing how the vessels were manufactured, decorated, traded and used. Placing the pottery in historical context, he describes its roots in the Hellenistic Greek tradition, its evolution as a distinct art form and its influence on Byzantine and Islamic trends. The Handbook of Roman Mediterranean Pottery is copiously illustrated with the author's own drawings and with photographs, both colour and black-and-white, showing many pieces never before published. An identification guide that synthesizes a vast amount of information, this volume is an invaluable resource for amateurs, students and collectors.
