The Late Roman and Early Byzantine pottery found in the excavations of the Early Christian church at Paliambela in Arethousa, a site located in Northern Greece west of ancient Amphipolis, is very fragmentary and consists mainly of body sherds. Few pieces of imported fine ware were found, and only some fragments of African Red Slip Ware and Late Roman C Ware could be identified. However, some pieces of Macedonian Terra Sigillata Grise bowls were found in the area of the north aisle of the church.
Cooking pots are the most usual form of coarse ware, but fragments of bowls, basins, jars and jugs were found, too. One of the jugs has a trefoil rim. Some of the pieces are decorated with single or grouped grooves, wave patterns and horizontal rouletted bands. These geometric motifs are either found as a sole decorative motif, or in combination with each other. Furthermore, there are fragments of Slavic Ware (two of them derive from rims) and some fragments of Sparkling Ware.
In the storeroom that was excavated in the northern part of the church, seven large pithoi were found. These pithoi were covered with either large ceramic lids or schist slabs.
