Ceramica celtică din așezarea getică de la Roșiori (jud. Neamț)

In the nine systematic research campaigns in the Getic settlement from Roșiori, commune Dulcești, Neamț County, were found Celtic vestiges (ceramics and iron pieces). Most are ceramic fragments, either from fine paste, gray-black color, polished outside (group a), either from graphite paste and with metallic gloss, gray color (group b). The fragments of the group a typologically indicate vessels such as mugs and jugs, and the fragments of group b represent the situla type vessels, a glass and a bowl. Those in the first group are decorated by incision, alveolar and stamping with crescents, circles, alveoli, single or double lines. In the second group the ornaments are vertical layers made with the comb in the raw pasta, before burning. The Celtic vessels of the group a are dated (in combination with fragments of Greek amphorae, one synopean and another rhodian) at the end of the 3rd century and the beginning of the 2nd century BC, and the vessels of group b, with graphite, date from the 1st century BC (in association with bastarnian ceramics and fragmentary bronze bracelets).
