4.4.7 Amphora fabric 3: ?Greco-Italic amphorae

This distinctive fabric is laminar with pinkish orange and yellow patterning in the clay matrix and occurs in both Greco-Italic and Dressel 1 amphorae (Pers. Obs.). This fact, along with the handle shapes and the distribution at sites which often also had Roman period settlement (CAP46, LC101, PR60, PR61), suggests that these sherds are probably of early Greco-Italic amphorae dating from the later 4th to 3rd centuries.
