The bowl has a double border preserved: the upper zone is made up of running spirals; the lower zone, though difficult to read, is evidently a flowered scroll. 6 has a fret for its second border, d291 has a rather poorly drawn flowered scroll with arched vine and tendrils, evidently similar to nos. Moevs links the flowered scroll to Heracleides (whom she furthermore links to the workshop at Tivoli), and says that this border was not in the repertory of Popilius and Lapius. d233 VG11/77 I19 A 2 Rim, rd 12.0 Everted rim above a slightly shorter hollow throat than d291; no lower moulded decoration is preserved. 5 shows that the fret can be placed upside down; stars (nos. F., "Bowls by Popilius and Lapius", Record of the Art Museum, Princeton University 17, 1 (1958), pp. Marabini Moevs, Maria Teresa, "Italo-Megarian Ware at Cosa", Memoirs of the American Academy in Rome 34 (1980), pp. Ohlenroth, L., "Zu den mittelitalischen Reliefbechern (Popilius-Ware)", Germania 33 (1955), pp. 8) The influence of other workshops is important for both date and cultural cross influence.Each of these zones is slightly depressed and is underlined by a narrow groove. She therefore places this border in the last quarter of the second c. Hard and fine medium red-brown fabric (2.5YR 6/6 light red) with a slightly darker surface. ) Narrow hollow corniced slightly everted rim; below the rim a single pointed leaf of moulded vegetal decoration survives; cp. 9, 'a straight ivy garland divided into segments with leaves turned in opposite directions, of which two ends and terminal round-petalled rosettes are preserved' (Moevs, 1980, p. Moevs believes that this ivy garland has a Pergamene origin; a closely related garland appears on the early issues of Pergamene cistophoroi coins, which first appeared around 190 B. 6 and 50) and other motifs also are attested as combined with this type of fret. Moulded rosette in disk, alternating pattern of rising double corded line and moulded oval ? R., "Hellenistic Pottery", Small Objects from the Pnyx: II, Hesperia Suppl. 9) I should read over the stratigraphic evidence from Cosa again. Quintius have signed bowls of this Italian type, but the sites of their workshops are not known. The finds from Cosa also included two fragments of moulds (pl. Moevs has written a detailed report on the sixty-eight sherds of Italo-Megarian ware from Cosa, discussing fabric, the internal and external evidence for dating, and the sequence suggested by stylistic criteria. 182), but on stylistic grounds, Moevs avoids placing them that early. 200-190, which is then the date for construction, allowing that the remaining pieces are in occupation of that period. While the moulded motifs include running spiral and fret borders and vertical acanthus leaves and spikes, all of which also occur at Cosa, the vertical rim which rises directly to an everted lip is quite different from the Cosa and Via Gabina examples, which have a hollow 'neck' above the topmost moulded border before the lip of the rim turns outward. Nine of the ten come from a very restricted area of the site. Whatever the provenance of the Italian examples, the fabric and decorative motifs are very consistent, suggesting that all these workshops were closely associated. It seems to me that Moevs' arguments from stylistic development are not strong enough to establish three separate periods of development (i.e., before 150, from 150-75, and post 75 B. On the other hand, the evidence she presents allows me to be very comfortable with a date for this production between 200 and 100 B. Given the concentration of our own pieces in a specific area of the site, associated with the construction and occupation of Period IC, it seems reasonable to suggest that our pieces date c.Moulded ribbed vertical long leaf with trace of vertical corded line parallel. 2, Rome, Villa Giulia Museum; what does she think of it? Fine hard medium brown fabric with minute white and micaceous inclusions, darkened exterior surface. Moulded imbricated leaf decoration from calyx near base of bowl. The following two sherds incorporate basal medallions: d297 p149 VG11/76 F20 1 Base sherd. 3, 5 and 6 from the Tivoli dump of moulds and wasters. It was the combination of the works of the heart (liturgy), the mind (religious education and Catholic Social Teaching) and the body (works of charity).

The fine and hard, gritty and slightly micaceous redbrown fabric is consistently unslipped, the surfaces often darker and greyish. The dating of the type in general has been very erratic, as Moevs demonstrates. The pieces which Moevs illustrates from Tivoli show motifs which appear on the Via Gabina sherds: borders of running spirals, tendril scroll, running leaf and rosettes, running oak leaf and acorns, fret, fret with amphoras; median designs of jewel-ribbed nymphaea caerulea alternating with curly spikes or acanthus leaves, imbricate petals, nymphaea nelumbo alternating with acanthus, curly spikes. As of January 5, 1992, I am very much bemused by all this.

The upper border of running spirals is one of the most common border motifs among the finds at Cosa, occuring on nos. The motif is traditional on Greek Megarian bowls (Moevs, 1980, p. Hard fine brown fabric (between 2.5YR 6/4 light reddish brown and 6/6 light red), turning black (7.5YR 3/2 dark brown) towards exterior surface. d156 p138 VG11/77 H19 N CBS (sic) 'on top of block 1' Wall sherd. The style of the leaves and of the calyx as a whole have been characterized as a turgid and dramatic style to be associated with Pergamum. The style was part of the repertoire of Popilius himself (Moevs, 1980, pl.

Greek key pattern runs along over the odd blob or two; a double groove runs either above or below. The acanthus leaves here are most similar to the long swirly flanking leaves on no. Moevs quotes a parallel from Ostia (Arena, 113-4, no. (Moevs, 1980, following Byvanck-Quarles, 1953, who dates this trend to the beginning of the second half of the first c.

Slightly micaceous orange brown fabric (2.5YR 6/6 light red).

The following two wall sherds show well-known motifs of this type: d298 p42 VG11/76 G20 S B 3 Wall sherd, thickness 0.2 mm.
