The Amiens Patera

  • Jacques Heurgon


The discovery two years ago, in Amiens, of an analogue of the famous Rudge cup has raised interest among the historians of the Roman world. The new patera has been summarily described in the Comptes-Rendus de l'Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres (1949, p. 125 ff.) and will be more completely surveyed in the next volume of the Monuments Piot. Nevertheless it was thought that some account of the main differences between the two vases would be appreciated by students of Roman Britain.

1 I follow the same plan as Dr. Cowen and Professor Richmond in their excellent essay published in Archaeologia Aeliana XII4, 1935, 310 ff., dealing first with the archaeological matter, and then with the inscription; cf. also I. A. Richmond, ‘The British section of the Ravenna cosmograph,’ Archaeologia XCIII, 1949, 13 ff.
