Roman Feast dish
One of the most important activities of the ancient Romans was drinking in company, as strange it may sound today for Puritan societies. It was at feasts where political issues, transactions, or even planned conspiracies were discussed. Romans had special feast dishes, represented by a Roman Cup like this here.
Terra Sigillata vessel forms
Terra Sigillata vessels, as this one the Roman-Shop, were produced in countless forms and designs. As the shape and the painting can provide important clues for dating, all known forms are named after the locality where they have been found (Hesselbach, for example) or after the archaeologist who found them as for example Dragendorff, Curle a.o.) plus an added number for identification. Our special copy is made according to a model, a smooth conical Bowl, number 33 of Dragendorff.
