This paper attempts an analysis of the Lusitanian amphorae trade along the Roman Empire, between the 1st and the 5th c. A.D., with a possible extension into the 6th c. A.D. An overview of the published data is undertaken, taking into account essentially the consumption markets results and mainly their stratigraphic evolution. This flow is observed in comparison to the Historical data on the cereals trade from Hispania, trying to distinguish possible coherences and anomalies. At least three clues seem to be correct: the Mediterranean (mainly its western part) as the main market; its consolidation over the Late Empire; and the strong predominance of the salted-fish products, having the Lusitanian wine a residual value.
