From the ceramic lot (circa 10.000 Roman wares) identified within the legionary fortress at Potaissa, only 10 of them bear graffiti, tituli picti and manufacturer stamps on their body (0,1% of the total). The ceramic wares were recovered from various areas of the fortress, namely the barracks (praetentura sinistra, praetentura dextra, latus praetorii dextrum, retentura), the legionary baths (thermae), the western gate (porta decumana), and the headquarters building (Principia). In the present study I will offer an interpretation of the finds, as well as an explanation for the extremely rare occurance of manufacturer stamps within the Potaissa legionary fortress.

Keywords:Graffiti; Roman pottery; Potaissa; legio V Macedonica; legionary fortress.
