Plate

On the coast of Etruria
125 BC - 90 BC
Black-varnished clay
4 x Ø19.5 x Ø7 cm
From El Camp de les Lloses, Tona (Osona)
MEV 24397

This plate, along with the portable domestic 'arula' (MEV 24398) and a set of pottery, was unearthed inside a dwelling and in a stratigraphic context and has been interpreted as being for religious offerings and libations of a domestic nature, as these small altars were used for private worship in Romanized areas. It's a campaniana B plate, black-varnished, imported from Italy. The late-republican establishment of El Camp de les Lloses is related to the intensification of the process of Romanization in Catalonia and especially to the construction of highway infrastructures that joined the interior to the coast of Catalonia.
