Summary:
This book offers a unique insight into the Roman production and commerce of food through the description of a vast and so far unpublished collection of finds from the Brijuni Islands. At the time of Tamás Bezeczky's original research in the eighties, it was not possible to study the thousands of amphorae, tegulae, fine ware and glass excavated in one of the Laecanius villas; they were kept in storage uninvestigated before Bezeczky decided to study them. In 2011, he initiated a new research into the Laecanius villas and amphorae in Brijuni. An international team examined all the currently available amphora finds from one of the Laecanius villas (Castrum) and selected the rim, base, neck and handle pieces of the most important amphora types. The members of his team (Piero Berni Millet, Michel Bonifay, Claudio Capelli, Horacio González Cesteros, Sándor Józsa, Alexander Schobert, Martino La Torre and György Szakmány) represent various aspects, fields and disciplines from which of the food production and commerce of the Roman Empire can be studied. They contributed the individual chapters of this book.
