The paper discusses lamps of Tripolitanian production found in Aquileia during recent research projects (sewagesystem rescue excavation between 1968 and 1972 in the city center and the excavation of the so-called Domus of Titus Macer at the site of the former Cossar property) as well as known otherwise from the northern Adriatic region. The authors present typologies and distribution maps, and consider on these grounds the trade routes traveled by Tripolitanian lamps to Aquileia. This leads them in turn to a look at commercial patterns reflected in this, including Aquileia’s role as a rich harbor city rooted in the Adriatic distribution system and a hub for the distribution of goods to the hinterland settlements.

Abstract

The paper discusses lamps of Tripolitanian production found in Aquileia during recent research projects (sewagesystem rescue excavation between 1968 and 1972 in the city center and the excavation of the so-called Domus of Titus Macer at the site of the former Cossar property) as well as known otherwise from the northern Adriatic region. The authors present typologies and distribution maps, and consider on these grounds the trade routes traveled by Tripolitanian lamps to Aquileia. This leads them in turn to a look at commercial patterns reflected in this, including Aquileia’s role as a rich harbor city rooted in the Adriatic distribution system and a hub for the distribution of goods to the hinterland settlements.
