abstract
This paper presents the results of a multi-disciplinary provenance study of Roman stone ointment palettes (1st–4th century AD) found in the northern part of the provinces of Gallia Belgica and Germania Inferior. Comparative analysis allowed a geo-archaeological team to identify the raw materials used for carving the palettes. Geological origins as well as geographical provenances have been suggested. The inventoried stone types include limestones, breccias, marbles, sandstones and igneous rocks derived from various geological formations and geographical areas. The palettes are mainly found within larger agglomerations such as towns and vici but also in military contexts. The geological identification and provenancing might lead to new insights into the socio-economic processes at work in the most northern part of the Roman Empire.
