During the period of Roman dominance of the Mediterranean,

maritime routes were important channels for the exchange of goods

between distant parts of the Empire. These routes have changed

over the centuries for political, economic and other reasons. This

paper aims to present differences in the fluctuation of imports

and exports between the eastern Adriatic coast, Italia and other

Roman provinces based on finds of amphorae in Croatia from the

1st to 6th century AD. Amphorae are certainly the most common

find in underwater archaeology research campaigns. Although

they served mainly as packaging containers for the transport

of supplies, they are today a rich source of information about a

ship’s cargo: point of origin, the type and size of ship, its ports

of call and much more. Also, a lot of information can be found

out by studying the amphorae assemblages from harbours and

other coastal sites.
