Wine Amphora with Stamp

Place Discovered




Date Discovered

Fragment of a wine amphora from Rhodes with a stamp that names the eponym Agemachos and the month Dalios. Agemachos can be quite accurately dated to ca. 181 – 179 BCE. An eponym was a yearly elected official, hence his name is preceded by the Greek preposition epi, meaning ‘under the term of’. The second handle of the amphora would have had the stamp of the fabricant. The repair holes along some of the breaks show that this amphora was repaired in antiquity, before it was placed as a funerary gift in a tomb.
