1 rim sherd with a beaded rim, a plain band followed by a narrow band of egg and dart. Below this part of a worn panel of decoration with floral(?) elements. Very worn. Form 37.
Form 37, Central Gaulish. An abraded sherd shows an ovolo frieze (Rogers 1974, B263 used by Cettus, the small-S potter) on a guideline or bead row. Panel decoration is divided by bead rows topped by the small-S, Rogers 1974, S72.
