Rom, Italien: Die Ziegelstempel der Kaiserpaläste auf dem Palatin

Detailed architectural and archaeological analysis of four major sections of the Imperial residences on the Palatine Hill in Rome – the domus Severiana, the Stadium, the domus Augustana and the domus Flavia – has made it possible, together with the brick stamps identified in previous studies and mentioned by the bibliography, to identify 940 brick stamps. This collection lends new insight into the different phases of construction from pre-Flavian to Maxentian time and therefore enables a better understanding of the Imperial palace’s development. Furthermore, careful examination allows us to reflect on the supply mechanisms as well as repartition of the production centres from whence the bricks used on the Palatine Hill originated.
