Abstract | Deciphering Greek Amphora Stamps

Nathan Badoud

About 300,000 Greek amphora stamps have been discovered so far. What were they used for? They themselves do not tell us, and no ancient source mentions them. Hence hypotheses have multiplied since the middle of the 19th century. A historiographic approach will help to set out the problem in a new way. The study of the Rhodian evidence will then provide a fresh solution.
