Amphoras are pottery containers which were used for the storage and transport in the Greek and Roman world. Their importance to the original users was their contents, and to the archaeologist they offer a direct reflection of the large-scale movement of goods, principally foodstuffs, in the ancient world. Many are large, two-handled and with a rounded or spiked foot.
