The present paper analyses problems related to the Italic copies of African lamps, due to recent discovery of 8 Atlante XA1a lamps in the domus so-called of Tito Macro at Aquileia. The examined group offers the possibility to investigate the phenomenon of local copies of African products in Northern Italy which seems to increase mainly from the middle of the 5th century AD onward. The analyzed samples have the same fabric and a discus decorated with a prayer, a wide-spread motif also in a group of original African lamps, on which they seem to be inspired. Technology and fabric of the examined lamps suggest the same production center which the archeometrical analyses placed in the Adriatic area.
