Description: An ancient Early Christian Roman red-ware plate fragment with the Christogram, Chi-Rho, in the center with alpha and omega below.

Comments: From the 1st century A.D. onward, North African red-slip ware production expanded greatly and began to replace Italian Terra Sigillata pottery, and compete with Gallic wares in Southern France. Nova Karthago was the center of production but smaller factories soon cropped up throughout Numidia and Byzacena.
