Roman ceramics Terra Sigillata from different production areas have been analyzed by means of “laser induced plasma spectroscopy” (LIPS). The overall objective of this study is to show the capability of LIPS to classify these archaeological ceramics as a function of their provenance. The use of linear correlation methods allows us to cluster the samples by quantitative comparison of their LIP spectra, leading to a reliable assignment of Terra Sigillata pieces to their regions of origin and establishing reference groups for the purpose of assigning future pieces.
