How to document an amphora

 

Calculate the volume of an amphora

The formula for the automatic calculation of the volume of amphorae that you will find here was developed by Jean-Vianney Richard, Engineer Surveyor Topographer, during his stay in Alexandria in 1999. It is based on the exploratory work of Yves Rigoir *. It is free of rights and you can use it according to your needs.
