Forum Traiani's Terra Sigillata Plate
January 2004

Forum Traiani is a well known suppliers of roman items. They are mainly focused on civilian items.

This terra sigillata plate is a replica of the type Dragendorff 18/31, a plain dish dated AD 90-150. The Forum Traiani produck ID is 492.


A couple of the same kind of Dragendorff 18/31

FT sells two different sizes: the code 492 is 21,5cm while the code 492a is 12,50cm. The model reviewed is the biggest size.

The real maximum diameter measured is 20,8cm that seems to be more accurate to the originals than their web site declares.

In the center of the place is reported the sign: "XAN TST" as visible from the images.
The package received does not include any kind of documentation about the producer, the production or the original.

Conclusion
The item is very accurate and reproduces the original pretty perfectly. It is hand made. The price is 18 euro, that is reasonable, but for a single dish can be a bit high if the shipping fees are added. FT doesn't have any kind of "stock" policy.
