Painted Roman Jug made from Terra Sigillata
Terra Sigillata pottery is a typical Roman ceramic genre that developed in the Roman Empire in the 1st century BC according to models of the Hellenistic East. Either turned on the Potter's wheel and then partially painted or made more complex with modeling, distinguished by the characteristically bright red glossy cover, they still impress any lover of antiquity today.

The function of Roman Terra Sigillata pottery
Roman Terra Sigillata pottery was produced in rough quantities, but of course not always of exceptional quality. In the homes of the patrician and richer officers (equites), the more expensive and high-quality vessels, which showed scenes of everyday life or mythology with reliefs, could be decorated with painted ornate decorations, and particularly at the feast were used as tableware.
