The orcio is one of the key articles in the production of terracotta pots. It is a kind of amphora, but with a fuller-bodied shape and more ornate decorations. The orcio has a substantial, rotund shape and is usually characterised by two or more bands embracing its generous belly. There are two handles on the upper part and the belly can be covered in decorations, festoons or plaques indicating the craftsman who produced the piece.
