The investigation was aimed at defining the compositional and structural characteristics of a group of monochrome blue faiences recovered in Pompeii to assess provenance on the basis of their technological features. Different complementary analytical techniques were used: Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) to investigate the morphological aspects of the samples and in particular of the interfaces, micro-Raman Spectroscopy and XRPD to identify crystalline phases and Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) to assess the elemental composition due to its sensitivity to a wide range of elements and the adequate lateral resolution. Statistical data treatment of the elemental concentrations of both the ceramic bodies and the glazes allowed us to classify the objects into compositional groups and to verify the previously established archaeological hypothesis suggesting an Egyptian provenance for faience of Pompeii.
