This paper presents the results of the study of common pottery from the hillfort of Agra dos Castros (Lugo), located on the outskirts of the current city of Lugo. This hillfort seems to begin its occupation at some time prior to the change of era, continuing its development under the protection of Lucus Augusti. Here we will try to characterize the (local) pottery production and wares typologically and determine the chronological evolution of the site’s occupation, qualifying, as far as possible, the pre­viously established phases. The study of this site assemblage will help us to define the wares produced in this period as well as determine the sphere of influence of the civitas.
