A wide set of chemical, physical, mineralogical and petrographical analyses were performed on ceramic samples aiming at highlight the technology adopted by the ancient craftsmen for their manufacture. In particular, the investigated properties of ceramic body as well as the decorations of the tablewares account for good technological standards in terms of manufacture and firing processes. The cooking wares were crafted paying less attention to firing process evidencing changes in furnace atmosphere.
