Roman Ostia, harbour of Rome, was the main collection point of goods with a multi-ethnic population. Previous studies have focussed mainly on buildings and valuable objects due to a well-rooted culture-historical approach. This thesis investigated the significance of 500 previously overlooked portable clay artefacts which, with their low economic value but highly symbolic meanings, provide key evidence about daily life in this vital Mediterranean centre.
