After the fall of the western part of the Roman Empire, the remaining part in West Asia and Egypt kept continued to use Roman style red pottery. By around 700 A.D., after Heraclius, Byzantine potters began to make tin-glazed pottery, just like in the neighbouring Umayyad empire. This glazed pottery looked a lot like the Islamic glazed pottery, and continued to be used all through the rest of the Byzantine empire.
