Book: A History of Pottery and Potters in Ancient Jerusalem

Chapter: The Later (Roman) Dump Pottery

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.21704


This chapter discusses the later Roman sherds found on the eastern Ophel slopes. These sherds, with the exception of two sherds of class 12D2 (jars), had only been found in the dumps lower down the slopes and in Site C. It is considered that these later sherds were transported lower down the slopes by erosion of the surfaces in higher areas.
