Samian Ware - Terra sigilatta
Samian ware was a high status style of pottery made in Germany from the first century B.C. to
the second Century A.D. Being extremely fine grained clay the pottery was able to be worked
into thin and ornate pieces that could bear images of animals, people, patterns and when fired
produced a glossy orange colour. Some of the most attractive pottery ever made in the Empire.
