harmaakeramiikka ja samiankeramiikka
Explanation:
Asked term seems to be connected with Roman period. Gray-ware and Samian ware are both common finds in archaelogical sites in Great Britain and Central Europe. They most likely are either local production or imports. Name comes from type of ware not place of origin. Samian ware was produced in Gaul, now part of France and Germany. There probably isn't an exact Finnish term for Samian so I propose to leave it as it is.

In archaelogical context ware translates as keramiikka.

Correction: I believe Gray-ware translates better harmaasavikeramiikka. Corrected suggestion:
harmaasavikeramiikka ja samiankeramiikka.
