Approximately 4% of the pottery dates to the Late Roman Period (ca. 70-324 CE). These are predominantly bowls and jugs, as well as a large percentage of oil lamps; other forms account for only a small fraction of the assemblage. The Late Roman and Byzantine Period ceramic traditions reflect regional variations, since simple vessels were produced from local clays and distributed nearby. Only sought-after vessels of luxury were brought from a distance. The simple vessels shown here are therefore typical of the Jerusalem region and were produced in the area. The locally produced vessels are characterized by red, orange or light-brown fabric which is usually well levigated and fired to a metallic ring.
