Abstract

The Via Lepanto site is one of the best examples showing how the Vesuvian region was partiallyreconstructed and earlier re-occupied after Vesuvius’s eruption in the year 79 AD. The large amount ofceramic finds illustrates the typology in use in this area during the IV and V century AD. Analyses werefocused on table and cooking ware productions. Archaeometric data were obtained using chemical andminero-petrographical methods (OM, XRD, XRF and SEM). Grain size measurements using Image Analyseson thin sections and a geochemical comparison with clayey deposits outcropping in the Campaniaregion permitted the identification of the raw materials used for these pottery productions. XRD and SEMcompleted the data set, establishing the protocols used for pottery production in the Pompeii area duringLate Roman period. The Via Lepanto site was part of an exchange network of markets with a periodicfrequency, where locally produced and imported pottery was sold, indicating a flourishing network ofexchanges spanning short, medium and long distances.
