Based on the author's thesis, this study focuses on local hand-made Late Iron Age pottery traditions of Dacia, a region which was to become a Roman province in 106 AD. Mircea Negru presents a typology of nature hand-made storage, kitchen and tablewares and argues that these types of ceramics continued to be produced even after the first Roman colonists arrived due to local demand, conservatism and the sheer popularity of these vessels among the local population.

Fr mehr als eineinhalb Jahrhunderte - von der Eroberung durch Traian 106 n. Chr. bis zur Aufgabe unter Aurelian im 3. Jahrhundert n. Chr. - bildete Dakien ein nach Osten vorgeschobenes Bollwerk des Rmischen Reiches. In etwa dem heutigen Rumnien entsprechend, war es eine der faszinierendsten Provinzen der rmischen Welt: Es war geographischer und kultureller Brckenkopf zwischen Ost und West und erhielt sich auch nach der Romanisierung eine auergewhnliche.

An attempt to look afresh at `old' material such as the well-known seals of Crete. Sbonias' study looks first at the settlement picture of the island at the time when these seals were being produced. He then turns his attention to the classification of the seals and the immages on them, dividing them up according to shape and material. This is followed by grouping according to iconographic and stylistic elements. This done, the information is then interpreted so as to reveal niformation on social and economic aspects of the early Cretan seals: what developments are represtented by their use, their decoration and so on.
