MOLA (Museum of London Archaeology) publications, including the Monograph and Archaeology Studies series, employ standard codes for ceramics of all periods. These codes were developed for recording purposes. Roman pottery is recorded using codes (alphabetic or a combination of alphabetic and numeric) for fabrics, forms and decoration, detailing their expansions and date ranges.
