<p>The main question we want to ask here concerns the application of philosophical considerations on identity about artifacts of a particular kind (pottery). The purpose is the recognition of types and their classification, which are two of the main objectives of archaeological investigation. These ceramic objects, because of their “simplicity”, also lend themselves to abstract considerations that may suggest a fruitful use of the mathematical rules of geometry. It is therefore not surprising that mathematicians have been interested in this question of the characterization of forms. Rather than imposing a very precise definition of the notion of “type” from the outset, we shall consider it initially as equivalent to that of “category” or “class”, and then risk an “onto-epistemo-semantic” proposal.</p>
