This article first appeared as two different versions of papers presented at the 'Big Data on the Roman Table' workshops at Leicester and Exeter, UK. I am extremely grateful to the organisers for inviting me to participate in what was a very productive and thought-provoking network. The ceramic data presented here were first analysed in the course of my PhD dissertation, which was supported by grants from the National Science Foundation (BCS-0935847), the Georges Lurcy Charitable and Educational Trust, and the Mellon Foundation Dissertation-Year Fellowship through the University of Chicago. I am deeply grateful to Thierry Janin and Michel Py, both former directors at Lattes, for graciously allowing me access to the vast amount of data from the years of excavations at the site.
