Résumé : This contribution will present the Late Roman pottery excavated in sector 17-O and preserved at the Princeton University Art Museum. Although the material was sorted on the field at the time and only a selection was brought back to the United States after the excavations ended, the corpus nevertheless provides a good insight of the main categories of ceramic used at Antioch between the 4th and the 7th c. A.D. Fine wares consist in Phocaean Red Slip, Cypriot Red Slip and African Red Slip, while cooking ware is represented by the typical northern Syrian « Brittle Ware ». The few amphorae preserved are the LRA 1, LRA 4, several types of bag-shaped amphorae and the Sinope amphora. This corpus is of importance as, besides the publication of the Red Slip Wares by F. Waagé in 1948, nothing was known of the material culture of the ancient capital of Syria Prima. It corresponds to what one would expect in a major capital at the center of an economic crossroad and shows strong similarities with the material of Apamea-on-the-Orontes, capital of Syria Secunda.
