Abstract

Research conducted on the island of Ischia have allowed us to establish that many Graeco-italic amphorae recovered during the excavation at Santa Restituta (Lacco Ameno) (MGS III, IV, V?) were manufactured locally (4th-3th Century B.C.). These containers have a characteristic type of "fabric" whose distinctive morphologic features make them unmistakable. Moreover, other Graeco-italic amphorae (MGS IV to small degree, but mostly MGS V, V/VI) with similar characteristics have been found at many sites throughout the Western Mediterranean (Ischia, Lipari, Pech Maho, Ensèrune), and sometimes with same marker's stamps, in contexts dated to the mid/late 4th to 3rd Centuries BC. The origin of this group of amphorae, probably a common source, cannot be confirmed at this time even though laboratory analyses suggest that their provenance was perhaps Campania (Bay of Naples?). The cross-examination of data produced earlier suggests that the exportation of Campanian wine in the Western Mediterranean, generally thought to have been traded after the 2nd Punic War, was probably marketed at an earlier date.
