Abstract

ON A CERTAIN CATEGORY OF DIPINTI ON LIGHT-CLAY AMPHORAE FROM TANAIS S.M. ILYASHENKO Inscriptions in paint on amphorae (dipinti) constitute one of the largest col- lections of finds from Tanais. Dipinti found in the course of work by the Lower Don Expedition of the USSR Academy of Sciences' Institute of Archaeology in the fifties, sixties and seventies have been analysed in considerable detail by D.B. Shelov.' At the present time a General Comprehensive Catalogue of in- scriptions on amphorae from Tanais compiled by B. B6ttger and D.B. Shelov is published, which provides the fullest information available on this category of material. I Unfortunately most of the inscriptions are either in a poor state of preservation or contain certain signs and letters that are difficult to interpret. Yet the quantity of these dipinti is so great that D.B. Shelov has been able to single out several large groups on the basis of the information they contain; names of owners, indications of the vessels' volume, numbers of the given type of vessel and so on. Analysis of inscriptions on light-clay amphorae from the cellar of VB, who perished in a fire in the middle of the 3rd century AD enabled B.
