The stratigraphy and pottery from two spoliation contexts located at the Templum Pacis (Rome) are described here. The stratigraphic data reported in the first part of this manuscript deals with two main activities recognized within the investigated area and identified as two different spoliation trenches. The first one, -910, removed the foundations of the western wall located between the worship hall and the Forma Urbis hall. The second one, -1203, later than the first, was excavated in order to remove the brick curtain of the surviving septum wall, located to the west of the wall destroyed by the previous ditch.
Finally, the data collected during the last fieldwork campaigns, between 2012 and 2015, increase our knowledges of the western most area of the temple, partially reconstructed during the 2000’ and 2010’ excavations. The second part of the manuscript deals with the study of the pottery collected from the fills of the spoliation cuts. The results suggest that the -910 dates between the end of twelfth and the beginning of thirteenth century whilst the -1203 dates between the thirteenth and the fourteenth century. Further, the material analyzed, including the residuals, enabled us to reconstruct different phases of occupation and abandonment of the Templum Pacis area between the Imperial period and the sixteenth century.
