Eastern Wines on Western Tables: Consumption, Trade and Economy in Ancient Italy is an interdisciplinary and multifaceted study concerning wine commerce and the Roman economy during Classical antiquity. Wine was one of the main consumption goods in the Mediterranean during antiquity, and the average Roman adult male probably consumed between 0,5 - 1 litre of it per day. It is therefore clear that the production and trading of wine was essential for the Roman economy. This book demonstrates that wines from the Eastern Mediterranean and the Aegean region in particular, played a crucial part in wine commerce. Moreover, it sheds new light on economic dilemmas that have long puzzled scholars, such as growth and market integration during antiquity.

Abstract

This paper presents the first study of the Roman period amphorae which were discovered by the Gonio-Apsaros Polish-Georgian Expedition at the Roman fort of Apsaros (modern Gonio, Georgia) between 2014 and 2019. Six excavation seasons provided over a thousand diagnostic fragments of both locally produced and imported transport containers, with a considerable number of these dating to between the 1st and 3rd centuries AD. Most of the imports come from the southern Black Sea and the Aegean regions, whereas northern Black Sea containers appear only occasionally.
