samian (stamped) (graffito)

Description
2 joining base sherds of Curle 23 (?), stamped in the centre of the base with an eight-petalled rosette. The underside of the base has a graffito (no. 7) inscribed on it post cocturam.
(i) HB (ii) R. HB and R are differently aligned. Between them are two parallel scratches (drawn) which could be taken as an I, but in view of their different alignment and the difficulty of understanding HBI, they are better taken as casual damage. After R there would have been space for a second letter, but there is no sign of it. The graffiti is presumably the initials of two successive owners.
