  Abstract:  The tableware recipients found at Grădiştea de Munte – Sarmizegetusa Regia represent the majority of the unearthed and published ceramic material so far. Although they received some attention, especially the painted ones, their study remained on a general level. They are local products, mostly inspired by late Hellenistic and early imperial Roman products, only few imports being identified at this point. A close analysis of the main forms and variants points out the late chronology of this functional category, towards the end of the 1st century AD, the predominance of bowls and carinated dishes, and the scarcity of drinking vessels. Also, at least in the area close to the sanctuary, it should be noted that a similar pattern of ceramic assemblage starts to take shape at Sarmizegetusa Regia: tableware – storage vessels – cooking wares.

Key words: Sarmizegetusa Regia, Dacian pottery, tableware, imitations, functionality.
