  Two italian arretine sigillata "molioli" from Herrera de Pisuerga
Magazine of the Institute of Prehistory and Archeology Sautuola

AMARC-IEU: 19/04/2024
The article by PhD. Cesáreo Pérez, published in scientific magazine Sautuola's tribute dedicated to Ramón Bohigas Roldán (1956-2018), focuses its attention towards the study of two high imperial ceramic vessels found during archaeological excavations at Herrera de Pisuerga (Palencia, Spain). Both vessels were made in M. Perennius’ workshop in Arezzo (Italy) and are a very rare type of find for a location so far away from Italy. According to the archaeological context in which these “modiolo” ceramics appeared, it is very likely that they were used by the Legio IIII Macedonica officials in the 1st century BC.
