This paper focuses on amphora production in Punic Sicily between the 4th and the 3rd century BC. On the basis of provenance studies on about 320 ceramic samples, the morphological repertoires of the Punic cities of Solus, Panormos, Lilybaion and Selinus have been identified. The amphorae documentation gives evidence for both a significant difference between the north-western and the south-western production circle and a general, typological change in all the series towards the very late 4th century BC. Specifically, the present study tries to place these latter archaeological evidences in the historical frame of Sicily during the period of Agathocles.
