  • English: Terra sigillata is a term with at least three distinct meanings: as a description of medieval and early modern medicinal earth; in archaeology, as a general term for some of the fine red Ancient Roman pottery with glossy surface slips made in specific areas of the Roman Empire; and more recently, as a description of a contemporary studio pottery technique supposedly inspired by ancient pottery. Usually roughly translated as 'sealed earth', the meaning of 'terra sigillata' is 'clay bearing little images' (Latin sigilla), not 'clay with a sealed (impervious) surface'. The archaeological term is applied, however, to plain-surfaced pots as well as those decorated with figures in relief.
  • Italiano: La ceramica sigillata (in latino: terra sigillata), chiamata anche "ceramica aretina", o "ceramica samia", è una tipologia di ceramica fine da mensa (ovvero destinata ad essere utilizzata come servizio da tavola) diffusa nell'antichità romana. La sua caratteristica principale è una vernice rossa, più o meno chiara, e la decorazione a rilievo, modellata, impressa o applicata. Alcuni esemplari portano impressi dei bolli ceramici o "sigilli", dai quali la tipologia deriva il suo nome, che riportano il nome del fabbricante.
