Roman Terra Sigillata Fragment: Lion and Venator. An ancient Roman terra sigillata fragment from the corner of a large rectangular platter depicting a crouching male lion behind a venator who crouches beneath a large netted basket used to catch wild game. 3rd - 4th century AD.Terra Sigillata was initially an Italian ware, but in the first century AD production shifted to Gaul and later to the colonies along the German frontier. From the 1st century AD onward, North African red-slip ware production expanded greatly and began to replace Italian Terra Sigillata pottery, and compete with Gallic wares in Southern France. Nova Karthago was the center of production but smaller factories soon cropped up throughout Numidia and Byzacena. GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC AND AS DESCRIBED. HIXENBAUGH ANCIENT ART, NEW YORK.
