Product Details

A Roman earthenware table amphora from North African "red slip ware" with two vertical ears and a funnel-shaped neck. Roman Tunisia, probably El-Aouja. 3rd-4th century A.D

The name North African, Red-slipped ware is given to several related fabrics which were produced throughout the area of modern-day Tunisia from the late 1st to the 7th century AD. It was produced over such a considerable period and in numerous centers, there is a fair degree of variation, mainly in fabric texture and pottery quality.
