Tiñosa Olearia Amphorae in Portugal

Pedro A. Carretero Poblete

Arqueol. Iberoam.

This is a multidisciplinary study of the amphorae type known as Tiñosa, and reflects the preliminary research about the earliest productions of olive oil in the area of the Cadiz countryside. Tiñosa amphorae were the containers used to transport olive oil from Cadiz to the Turdetan-Punic region near the Strait of Gibraltar. The presence of such amphorae has been documented in the area of the Portuguese Algarve. Specifically, in the settlement of Castro Marim, Tiñosa amphorae were recovered in association with cult centers and ritual practices.
