English summary: The book is aimed at specialists in Gallo-Roman ceramics and at those involved in field of archaeology who want to quickly identify and properly classify ancient ceramics found in northern Gaul. The first part of the book is designed as a methodological introduction in which the methods of analysis and treatment of the Gallo-Roman pottery are discussed briefly. The contextual approach of this chapter focuses on the key concepts generally handled by the ceramologue, namely assembly, time horizon and facies. The second part is a dictionary of tableware from various trade centers in northern Gaul from the period of Roman occupation. It is a veritable guide that can help in the recognition of ceramics. It was created from a reference collection classified according to well-defined standards resulting from research involving interdisciplinary archaeological and archaeometrical approaches. The book successively takes into account the sigillata of the Upper and Lower Empires, fine ceramics, and ceramics that were widely disseminated. The work is divided into sections of photographs of vases representing relevant categories, of photographs showing the structure of pulp and coatings, and of boards and cluster maps showing dissemination and distribution of the dishes.
