search Karanis pottery

This search page is a valuable tool for quickly accessing images and information on specific pieces of pottery discovered at Karanis. You can search for items by either the Roman numeral types (e.g. II.c.ii) or the Arabic numbers (e.g. 148) found in the Record of Objects. When inputting Roman numerals, please convert Roman Numerals and letters into numbers: for example,'I' becomes '001_000_000', 'I.a' becomes '001_001_000', 'I.a.i' becomes '001_001_001', and so on. Arabic numbers, such as '294' or '186', are entered as is. Once you have entered your search, if an image is available, select 'Line Drawing' for a drawing of the object.
