Abstract

Bronze vessels as grave goods in the burial of the Vicus at Biatorbágy. In the eastern area of Biatorbágy, north of the Autostrada / No 100, around the tenth kilometer stone in 1991, 1995, 2004 heading the planned construction works rescue excavations were carried out. Here several Roman bronze vessels, probably grave goods, were excavated. This necropolis belonged to the Roman vicus at Biatorbágy. Different types of vessels, a wine jug with a round opening, a handled dish for hand washing, on which are a depiction of a sleeping African and Bacchic attributes, a water jug with a spout, some fragments belonging to bucket or cauldron, a second water jug with sharp projecting shoulder, a jug with round mouth and decorated handle, a bath-saucer came to light. The first jug – compiled from old parts – a strange creation by a local master, was originally produced at the end of the 1st century A.D. The handled dish and the bath-saucer were fabricated at the end of the 1st century A.D.–beginning of the 2nd century A.D. Both water jugs were made around the middle of the 2nd century A.D.
