Rescue excavations in the location of the future Faculty of Law in the former Barracks area of the Lower Town in Osijek revealed numerous features from antiquity with portable finds, even though the archaeological layers were partially devastated in places due to recent interventions. The excavated features include pits, post holes, canals, wells, and furnaces. The fill layer of the canal SU 80/81 contained various Roman finds made of pottery, brick, bone, glass, and bronze, with numerous animal bones. On the basis of the finds, the canal has been preliminarily dated to the period between the end of the 1st and the beginning of the 2nd century AD. A find that stands out is a fragment of a small amphora with an incised inscription. The upper part of the vessel has been preserved: the neck with the handles and the upper part of the body where there are incised letters. Incised (graffito) inscriptions have been documented on other amphora finds from southern Pannonia. The content of the inscriptions refers to the numerical indications of the weight or capacity of the vessel, to the content of the vessel, or to personal names. This last category can be associated with the Osijek example found in the fill layers of the canal.
