samian; decorated

Description
Form 37, Central Gaulish, with panel decoration divided by bead rows [2001-14-27, 33, 34]. The ovolo is Cinnamus ovolo 1 (S&S, fig.47). Panel decoration shows, from left to right:
a) Large double-bordered medallion containing the cantharus, Rogers T15, and a scarf dancer and column, O.322. The spandrels are occupied by the lozengic motif, Rogers U33.
b) Missing, but apparently narrow panel.
c) Festoon suspended from an astragalus and containing a dolphin (similar to O.2384).
d) A repeat of panel a.
A small non-joining sherd repeats part of panel c.
This would appear to be part of Steer 1961, Fig.6, 13 by Cinnamus. His ovolo 1 is dated 155-175 by Brian Hartley (1972, 49).
